JUNO BEACH, Florida — When rescued, he had a collapsed lung, pneumonia and holes in his shell that exposed his spinal cord and allowed in several pounds of sand — as well as a crab. Thirteen months later, and after surgeries that included braces to close gashes, he’s a free turtle.

A sea turtle, to be more precise, one from an endangered species whose chances of bouncing back just got a little bit better.
