Jimmy Carter has helped release a rehabilitated loggerhead sea turtle during a family vacation in the Florida Keys.
The former president participated in the release of Danger, a 102-pound (46-kilogram) loggerhead turtle, into the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday. The turtle had spent three months at The Turtle Hospital.
Carter also toured the facility, which is dedicated to treating and rehabilitating sea turtles.
Carter is in the Keys with wife Rosalynn and a number of family members as part of a holiday respite.
The vacation in the Keys is not the first for Carter and his family. In 1996, the family had a New Year's Eve dinner at the Harry S. Truman Little White House in Key West and returned there for a visit in December 2007 while on a cruise ship.
