Sorry, we’re out of gift cards. But hey, freedom!

Despite the controversy surrounding the marine park, SeaWorld has managed to land themselves a check on the ol’ good deed list: by releasing its 1,000th sea turtle into the Canaveral National Seashore waters.

The 102 pound loggerhead turtle (it’s all shell, baby) was suffering from lockjaw, weighing only a modest 70 pounds when it was brought to the park in September by the Sea Turtle Preservation Society of Brevard County.

The rescue and rehabilitation program at SeaWorld has been in place since 1980, rehabilitating around 50 sea turtles a year— a number which increased tremendously during the BP oil spill. 523 were taken in by SeaWorld in Orlando last year, of which 419 were eventually rehabbed and released, according to the article at Florida Today.

I don’t remember a turtle getting this much positive press since winning that race against the hare. Speaking of— whatever happened to his royalties for the book deal?!

Check out a video of the release below!
