Our main goal at Turtle Rescue Team is to release healthy turtles back to the wild. Prior to their release, we perform a complete physical exam to ensure the turtle is fully recovered and ready to be released. We will try to release the turtles where they were found. However, in instances where the turtle was found on a busy street or highway, we will release them at a safe location nearby.
