Go Andre Go!

Andre, a 171-pound green sea turtle, was released back into the wild on Aug. 3, 2011 from Juno Beach.

He was found more than a year ago, stranded on a sandbar and split open by multiple boat strikes. He had gashes in his shell, a collapsed lung and severe infections.

The Loggerhead Marinelife Center put him through a 13-month rehabilitation that included groundbreaking surgeries.
