The female reptile, laden with eggs, was discovered on a St. Croix, U.S.V.I., beach Aug. 24, just after Tropical Storm Isaac brushed the Virgin Islands. Hospital staff hope to save the turtle and hatch any fertile eggs with the goal of returning them all to St. Croix. (Andy Newman/Florida Keys News Bureau/HO)
