Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park invites you to tune in to ABC's Litton's Weekend Adventure on Saturday, Oct. 29, at 9 a.m. CST for a special episode of Sea Rescue.

Sea Rescue followed the story of a Leatherback sea turtle stranding, rehabilitation, and release. This is an iconic story, as Leatherback strandings are unheard of in the state of Florida. Coincidentally enough, the Gulfarium's C.A.R.E. Center encountered not one, but two Leatherback strandings in the past year.

Be sure to watch this Saturday to get an in-depth look into the great efforts of the C.A.R.E. Center, and how a rescued Leatherback from Niceville made its way back into the Gulf of Mexico.
