Krebster and Dr. Paul, two loggerhead sea turtles nursed back to health at Loggerhead Marinelife Center, are scheduled to be released back into the Atlantic Ocean in Juno Beach on Wednesday at about 10:30 a.m.
The release on the beach at LMC, just north of Donald Ross Road on the east side of U.S. 1, is free and open to the public.

Krebster was found April 13 near Hutchinson Island with anemia, hypoglycemia and overall poor health due to starvation.
The sea turtle weighed 61 pounds when brought to LMC. The sea turtle now weighs 72 pounds.
Dr. Paul was accidentally hooked by an angler at the Juno Beach Pier on April 17.
The turtle weighed 101 pounds when brought to LMC. Dr. Paul now weighs 105 pounds.
After months of fluids, medications and close monitoring by LMC staff, both have fully recovered.
Sea turtle releases usually draw big crowds. Viewers should get there early. (Photo/Rich Graulich)
