Amanda, an adult loggerhead sea turtle was rescued by a group of divers about a mile offshore from the Lake Worth Inlet on December 28, 2014. She was brought to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center for treatment.
Amanda’s latest position is 130 miles (211 km) south of Key West.

Amanda suffered from mechanical trauma to both front flippers. The wounds were healed at LMC and she was medically cleared for release.
A cell phone-sized radio transmitter is attached to her shell that allows LMC officials to track her location.
The 300-pound sea turtle was successfully let go back into the Atlantic Ocean off of Juno Beach on June 11, 2015.
