A Loggerhead Sea Turtle that has called the BioPark home for the last year is headed back to the wild.
Shelldon came to Albuquerque in October of last year as part of an education ambassador program.
Shelldon was previously at the North Carolina Aquarium.
Now Shelldon will head back to the East Coast before he is released into the Gulf Stream.
A BioPark aquarist and volunteer will fly with Shelldon on October 15.
Be sure to visit Shelldon at the BioPark Aquarium before he embarks on his new adventure.
