Chilly is a juvenile loggerhead sea turtle that was found in a poundnet in Core Sound, North Carolina, in November 2003. He was lethargic and weak due to the cold inshore waters he was found in. Chilly was immediately transported to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabiliation Center in Topsail, North Carolina, where he has responded well to his treatment and TLC administered by the volunteers and interns of the Center. Chilly was released on the beach at Topsail on 2 June 2004, to the cheers of hundreds of onlookers.
