MIAMI (CBSMiami) – An injured turtle is getting a second chance thanks to a local wildlife center.

The turtle is learning to use her sea legs again.

One of her flippers got caught in a fishing line and had to be amputated.

CBS4 Photojournalist Ralph Murciano visited the South Florida Wildlife Center to see how the injured turtle is recovering.

He filed a photo essay, which can be seen at the top of this page.
