Watch: Fort Lauderdale MODS Welcomes New Baby Turtle

Fort Lauderdale's Museum of Discovery and Science is welcoming a new, baby loggerhead sea turtle this weekend.   

A loggerhead that was found stranded on a Texas beach was rehabilitated, tagged and released again in Texas. However, the little guy then swam to Brevard, Florida, and got himself stranded again!

Brevard Zoo staff rehabilitated the sea turtle and now it will serve as the MODS Ambassador Loggerhead sea turtle.

On Thursday, the newest member of MODS was placed in a tank during a ceremony at the downtown facility near the New River.  

Officials hope the animal can help teach visitors about animal conservation.
