Mama Pritchard Goes for a Swim – Loggerhead Sea Turtle Released in Coastal South Carolina

Dear KEEN:

I thought I would shoot some pictures over to you. We just had our first loggerhead sea turtle release of the season. Mama Pircard had been with us at the South Carolina Aquarium for a couple years recovering from varies problems. She was number 44 on our release count since 2000 and we just pasted the 50 mark a couple days ago. I thought you guys over at KEEN would like the snapshots.

My wife took these and we started laughing because we’re all wearing our KEEN’s in many of the shots. I know most of us here at the South Carolina Aquarium love (and sport) your product. Enjoy the snap shots and where have my KEENs taken me…to the water’s edge with a 368 lbs loggerhead sea turtle!
