Andre, an endangered green turtle, crawls to the ocean after a 414 day stay at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Fla on Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011. Andre was found more than a year ago, stranded on a sandbar and split open by multiple boat strikes. He had gashes in his shell, a collapsed lung and severe infections. The Loggerhead Marinelife Center put him through a 13-month rehabilitation that included groundbreaking surgeries. (AP photo/The Palm Beach Post, Lannis Waters.)
