Free for the Jubilee

The Cayman Turtle Farm celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by releasing one of its oldest captive animals. The roughly 60 year old male green turtle has been at the farm for 30 years as part of the captive breeding programme. The turtle was satellite tagged and his progress can be tracked at http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?tag_id=112229&full=1&lang=

From the tracking records the male has shot pretty much due south into the Atlantic ocean. Indepths hopes the turtle survives and does well.
