Cousin It the green sea turtle

Name: Cousin It

Species: Green

Date admitted: March 6, 2021

Stranding location: Oceanfront Paradise Resort

Status: In treatment

Admission notes: This juvenile green sea turtle came to us on March 6 after stranding at Oceanfront Paradise Resort. Upon arrival, Cousin It was lethargic and, despite presenting with a large barnacle load, had good body condition. This sea turtle also presented with a lot of algae, hence their name. Cousin It was unwilling to eat, so to supplement nutrition and medication, an e-tube was installed.
