Green sea turtle Maddie

Name: Maddie

Species: Green

Date admitted: July 5, 2021

Stranding location: near Haulover Bridge, Mims

Status: In treatment

Admission notes: This juvenile green sea turtle was found stranded near Haulover Bridge in Mims. Upon intake, Maddie had FP, many necrotic lesions on the underside of their body, leeches and a very strange puncture wound on their carapace. Luckily, the deep wound had mostly healed on its own, but this sea turtle will need lots of tending to their wounds as they are already showing signs of infection.
