Georgia Sea Turtle Center officials say one of their most popular patients will be moved to Sea World in Orlando, Fla.
Spokeswoman Anna Hall says Caton, a female loggerhead sea turtle being treated at the center, has previously been released into the wild three times. Hall says Caton either swam back to the shores of Jekyll Island every time she was released or just sat on the beach.
Caton has lived at the sea turtle center for more than three years.
Officials say Caton was found stranded in 2009 on Ossabaw Island. She was severely debilitated and was placed in a recovery tank for observation.
Georgia Sea Turtle Center officials say Caton is considered unreleasable, which means she can still live comfortably in a captive setting.
