Godspeed, Bubba

JIM DAMASKE   |   Times


Bubba Gump, a 56-pound green sea turtle, is released Tuesday off Honeymoon Island. Adrienne Cardwell, left, and Cassie Seebart of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium free the turtle that was in rehab for a buoyancy disorder and lack of nutrition since March 2. The Hurst family — Renee, Joe and Jackson, 6 — watched in memory of Savannah, 3, who loved sea turtles and died of a genetic disorder in March.
