Yoshi the loggerhead turtle was dropped off at a South African aquarium by a Japanese fishing vessel. She had an injury to her shell, and the fishermen hoped the aquarium could help. They treated her and kept her as an exhibit for 20 years. As she neared breeding age, they rehabbed her for release and let her go. After swimming up the west coast of Africa for a bit, she turned around and swam all the way to Australia. There’s speculation she’s returning to her home beach to lay eggs.
