Yoshi and the Ocean: A Sea Turtle's Incredible Journey Home

In 1997, a young loggerhead sea turtle was rescued from the ocean after an injury to her shell. The fishermen who rescued her named her Yoshi and took her to the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town, South Africa. She was rehabilitated there and grew stronger — and larger! — every day. She also became one of the most popular exhibits at the aquarium.

After twenty years in captivity, Yoshi was released back into the ocean and traveled more than 25,000 miles in 1,003 days to find her way home. A tracking device on her shell transmitted data about her journey to marine biologists and turtle enthusiasts of all ages around the world.

Lindsay Moore chronicles the remarkable true story of Yoshi in this gorgeous picture book about patience, perseverance, the ocean, and finding your way home. With a map of Yoshi’s journey, information about sea turtles and how you can help them, and additional resources, this is a transformative story about the incredible journeys animals make and the interconnectedness of the natural world.
