Starting May 23, the public can seeEddie at his new home inside Turtle Rescue Center at Sea Life Aquarium, which includes a display tank specifically designed so that injured turtles are able to dive safely based on their injuries.

"We are excited to provide a home for this incredible sea creature that will serve as an ambassador for sea turtle education and conservation," said Karen Rifenbury, Displays Curator, Sea Life Aquarium. "Eddie is transitioning well after traveling. He will slowly be introduced into a large tank in Turtle Rescue Center with two additional non-releasable turtles. We invite everyone to come out starting May 23 and get an up close view of Eddie in his home."

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — At least Eddie didn't have to pay for checked baggage.

The green sea turtle found floating off the South Carolina coast almost two years ago took a Southwest Airlines commercial flight to Texas on Tuesday to his new home.

Eddie was found floating off Edisto Island in August of 2012 and was taken to the Sea Turtle Hospital at the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston. The juvenile turtle has a problem diving and cannot return to the wild.

Southwest Airlines donated a commercial passenger seat for Eddie and his crate. His new home is at the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine, Texas.

The South Carolina Aquarium treats about 30 sick or injured sea turtles a year. Eddie is the first to fly on a commercial flight.
