This video from the USA says about itself:
On Thursday, September 20, 2012, a leatherback sea turtle stranded alive in Truro, Mass. The sea turtle was rescued by Mass. Audubon and IFAW, then transported to the New England Aquarium’s Animal Care Facility in Quincy, Mass., for treatment. The turtle’s condition improved enough to be released on Saturday, September 22. He was fitted with a satellite tag and released from the lobster boat, Sea Holly. The turtle was still underweight and the prognosis remains unclear. But this individual sea turtle has been afforded another chance at survival as an endangered species that is staring down extinction.
