"Lucky Penny" is a loggerhead sea turtle hatchling heading for the ocean after being saved and given a second chance to survive by a Florida Amelia Island Turtle Watch volunteer, August 2009. She was crawling the wrong way into a wall of sand when she got disoriented. She was discovered after the trained volunteer systematically checked the nest for stragglers days after the rest had hatched and made their way to the ocean. Once she got the smell of the sea air, she blinked the sand from her eyes, felt the sun on her face and headed for the surf.
Each female loggerhead sea turtle swims for thirty years before going back to the place she was born to lay approximately one hundred eggs. Only one in one thousand turtles make it to adulthood.
