Olaf is a juvenile loggerhead that was rescued at the St. Lucie Power Plant intake canal on November 11, 2014. Olaf had two deep prop wounds on the right marginal scutes above the right front flipper. Otherwise, Olaf seemed to be in good shape and was eating well. Cold laser therapy was used to help heal the wounds on the carapace and antibiotics were administered. Olaf was cleared for release and outfitted with a SPOT5 satellite transmitter before being released on April 22, 2015 (Earth Day) from Juno Beach.
