SEAQUARIUM ADOPTEE ARRIVES AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TODAY; MARINE PARK ACCEPTS LOGGERHEAD TURTLE FROM DUTCH AQUARIUM

 SEAQUARIUM ADOPTEE ARRIVES AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TODAY;
 MARINE PARK ACCEPTS LOGGERHEAD TURTLE FROM DUTCH AQUARIUM
 A 200-pound, female loggerhead turtle will arrive by plane from Holland today at 4:20 p.m. at Miami International Airport. The turtle, which has been adopted by Miami Seaquarium, will arrive on Martinair Holland flight 615. Martinair Holland, along with Air Forwarding Systems and M & H Brokerage, both of Miami, donated their services for the animal's travel arrangements.
 Miami Seaquarium is providing a new home for the loggerhead, a threatened species, after the giant turtle outgrew its home at the Sea-aquarium in Bergen aan Zee, Netherlands.
 This is sort of a homecoming for the loggerhead, since the large, reddish brown turtles feed and nest along the Florida coast. The loggerhead arriving today is about 29 years old and has lived at the Sea-aquarium in Holland since it was a hatchling. The loggerhead will now reside at Seaquarium's "Lost Islands Wildlife Habitat."
 Reporters covering the loggerhead's arrival must report to the information counter at Concourse E., Miami International Airport, no later than 4 p.m. today. A bus will leave promptly at 4 p.m. for the arriving aircraft.
