She also was laden with parasites and covered with 15 pounds (7 kilograms) of barnacles, some of which had broken through to her bones. That was on June 27, 2019, when the loggerhead turtle did not appear likely to survive the week. But on Tuesday, more than a year later, Tabitha crawled from her wooden transport crate onto the sand in Point Pleasant Beach, roused by a wave that surged over her and prompted something ancient inside to propel her toward the sea for the second time in her life.
