CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A Florida sea turtle is taking flight.
She's a loggerhead sea turtle who was named before rescuers found out she was a girl.
Matthew was rehabilitated at the Florida Keys-based Turtle Hospital.
She was then flown by a private plane Sunday to permanently reside at a conservation facility on South Padre Island.
The nearly five-hour flight was a collaboration with "Turtles Fly Too," a non-profit group that provides transport for endangered species.
