COCOA BEACH, Fla. — People in Brevard County can watch a beloved sea turtle make the journey back to the ocean.
Brevard Zoo spent the last five months nursing Nephron, a juvenile green sea turtle, back to health.
The young turtle needed surgery to remove over 6 feet of fishing line it ate.
Nephron will take his trip back to the sea around 10:30 a.m. at the Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach.
Channel 9 will have a crew at the release and will provide updates on Eyewitness News.
