A green sea turtle, rehabilitated at the Florida Keys-based Turtle Hospital after being entangled in fishing gear, was fitted with a satellite tracking transmitter and released from a Florida Keys beach Friday. “Fleming” is to join the Tour de Turtles, a three-month-long race that will feature public online monitoring (tourdeturtles.org) of the forward progress of 14 sea turtles. The project is organized by the Sea Turtle Conservancy and the competition is to commence Aug. 1 after four more satellite transmitter-fitted turtles are released.
