Found on a beach in Sag Harbor on a cold December day in 2011, Sherman, a Kemp's ridley sea turtle, was cold stunned, a condition similar to hypothermia.
The turtle, weighing 8 pounds, was taken to the Riverhead Foundation's rescue hospital, where he was nursed back to health.
Sherman has since made a full recovery and is set to be released back into the wild on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at in Hampton Bays.
Sherman's release comes a week after officers rescued a sea turtle whose neck and front fins were wrapped in line and two buoys attached to a lobster trap and days after two sea turtles washed up along the coast of East Hampton Town.
