Virginia Beach, Va. – A baby loggerhead turtle was released into the Gulf Stream Friday morning after being nursed to health to make sure he would be strong enough to survive.

This loggerhead turtle hatchling is named, “Mine.”

That is his given name by the Virginia Aquarium’s Stranding Response Team.

The team helped Mine to eat and grow stronger so they could get the hatchling back on course by releasing him into the Gulf Stream.
