Debra is free again!

After a good night's sleep Debra the turtle was ready for release. We barely had time to take photos and she was off. Neal was in the water but only managed to catch a fleeting glimpse as she raced past him, seemingly fully recovered and heading back round to Costa Fragata where we hope to see her laying a nest very soon. Great team effort everyone.
