Name: Bean

Species: Green

Date admitted: January 6, 2019

Stranding location: Port Canaveral

Status: In treatment

Admission notes: Bean was brought to us on January 6—National Bean Day—and thus has a very fitting name. They were found in Port Canaveral with a heavy barnacle load. This juvenile green turtle has Caryospora, but has great body condition and is already eating on their own! Bean also had bloodwork taken, which looked good.

UPDATES

January 17, 2019: Bean is currently barnacle-free, eating well and in great body condition. This turtle is still struggling with Caryospora, but we hope the medication will help this spunky turtle soon.
