An endangered 10-month-old Western pond turtle, native to Washington, is examined, weighed, sized, tagged and marked for identification in Seattle in preparation for its release into the wild in an undisclosed location. The turtles were collected from the wild as eggs, hatched and "head started." They're back from the brink of extinction from a low of about 150 in the early 1990s to around 1,500 now because of a programs at Woodland Park Zoo and the Oregon Zoo. The Seattle Times | Alan Berner
