Kemp’s Ridley Turtle October 2007Kemp’s Ridley Turtle

Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle: Lepidochelys kempii 
The smallest and most endangered of all marine turtles.

The Jupiter Loggerhead Marine Life Center has 2 new turtles to add to the collection being rehabilitated at the facility in Florida.

After speaking with Sandy of Loggerhead MLC, she claims that she does not know why they are on the beaches of Jupiter. This is not the Habitat they normally cruise in.

Several various species of juvenile sea turtles are in the TUBS at the new facility, mostly from Brevard County.
