- Conservancy of Southwest Florida education director David Webb and aquarist Whitney Swain carry a container holding Sassy, a female loggerhead turtle, to a boat waiting at the Goodland Boating Park in preparation for the turtle's release on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014. The juvenile loggerhead was hatched on Sanibel Island during the summer of 2011 and became the first creature living in the Conservancy Nature Center's new 5,000-gallon saltwater tank. The turtle also spent two months in a study linking nest temperature to the gender of hatchlings. Researchers equipped the turtle with identification tags. They hope the turtle will return to Southwest Florida in about 20 years to nest.
