A YOUNG turtle with only three flippers has exceeded expectations and migrated across the ocean. The loggerhead turtle was rescued on 12 July 2016 by environmental non-profit organisation Equinac, off the coast of Spain. At the time of discovery, the endangered animal, who rescuers have called Benjamin, had an almost-dead fin due to it being entangled in fishing equipment. Sadly, there was nothing that could be done to save the flipper, so the organisation chose to amputate the limb. When it came time to release him back into the wild in July 2018, the team decided to fit a tracking device to his shell. He was released in Cabo de Gata Natural Park in the Mediterranean, and has already travelled further than the team at Equinac ever expected.
