See larger Noah Sipnick, 9, raises his hands to the glass of the loggerhead turtle at the Naples Conservatory while he and Katherine Jones, 9, wish it goodbye on Thursday, June 26, 2008. The turtle was released into the wild later that day.  The turtle was taken to Minnesota by a tourist on vacation in Sanibel Island while the turtle was still a hatchling. Shortly thereafter, the turtle was turned over to the Minnesota Herpetological Society and lived in a Minnesota zoo for one year before it was brought to Naples in 2005. The turtle was released in Gullivan Bay in the 10,000 Islands off the Southern coast of Florida. Ed Matthews/Staff
