A rehabilitated green sea turtle from Jekyll Island has found a new home in Pittsburgh.

Sunburst, a 5 to 7-year-old green sea turtle, was injured by a boat back in 2010 and has since been undergoing rehabilitation at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island.

On Monday, she got a first class ticket to the Pittsburgh Zoo, where she will help educate the public about marine life.
