Blitzen
Blitzen is an adult male loggerhead sea turtle that was rescued on December 24, 2016 on Hutchinson Island, Florida. Blitzen was first noticed struggling to swim in rough surf by homeowners on Hutchinson Island who reported the turtle to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Blitzen was suffering from malnutrition, dehydration, and a head injury. Blitzen was transferred to Gumbo Limbo Nature Center for his rehabilitation. After months of attentive care from our sea turtle rehabilitation staff, Blitzen is ready to return to the ocean. A satellite tag has been applied to follow Blitzen's movements once he is released. Gumbo Limbo Nature Center's staff is thrilled to be releasing another successfully rehabilitated sea turtle and we hope you'll join us to send him off. View migration map.

If you don’t see your turtle listed above, please check the full list of sea turtles tracked through the STC website.

Note About Location Points: STC does not receive location points every day. Some location points are provide by researchers and are posted on the maps as soon as we receive them. There may be times when there are no new points for several weeks. This is most likely the result of the sea turtle not staying at the surface long enough for the transmitter to be picked up by enough satellites. It takes several satellites to pick up the location of a transmitter and the transmitter antenna needs to be out of the water long enough for the satellites to pick up the signal. STC will continue to post new positions as soon as we receive them.
