An endangered leatherback sea turtle made a rare stop on a Collier County beach Monday morning. http://bit.ly/7648fX The turtle, which weighed between 500 and 600 pounds, was discovered around 7:30 a.m. disorientated on the beach at Delnor-Wiggins State Park, according to Collier County Parks and Recreation officials. It is the first time a leatherback sea turtle has been spotted on Colliers shores, said Maura Kraus, principal environmental specialist with Collier County Parks and Recreation. The adult female turtle was believed to be from Costa Rica because she had a metal tag on her rear leg flipper, officials said.
