Virginia Aquarium to Release 3 Sea Turtles

Posted: Updated:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Team is releasing three rehabilitated sea turtles back into the ocean.

The turtles will be released at the Virginia Beach oceanfront on Friday morning.

One of the turtles will be wearing a satellite tag and an acoustic tag. The turtle's movements will be tracked on seaturtle.org by satellite while the Navy will receive information provided by the acoustic tag.

The Navy is tracking the movements of sea turtles in the Chesapeake Bay and along the coast so scientists can better protect the turtles during training exercises.
