There are few sights as heartwarming as a creature returning to its natural habitat. And tomorrow, Tues. Oct. 3 at 3 p.m., four sea turtles return to the sea at IOP County Park.

Tomorrow's release is the final release of the year, with turtles rehabilitated at the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Care Center. The flotilla includes one Kemp's ridley, Sheldon, and three loggerheads, Hank, Caldwell, and Jacobs. An S.C. Aquarium member will be on shore narrating the release and providing details about each turtle.

If you can't make it to the release, you can watch all the action on the South Carolina Aquarium's Facebook livestream.
