Our Sea Turtle Healing Center experiences so many amazing moments, from a critical patient who recovers well from surgery to the return of a turtle back to the water. But those happy moments are accompanied by the hard times we realize we’ve done all we can for a patient. We want to share one of those times with you in the hopes it can help save another sea turtle.
One of our Sea Turtle Healing Center patients, Nephron, is recovering after major surgery to remove fishing line from their intestines.
This week, our Sea Turtle Healing Center experienced a first: One of our healthy, but unreleasable sea turtle residents was a blood donor for a critical patient at another facility.
We wished Sea Turtle Healing Center patient Hiccup well on March 29 as we sent them back to the water following a five-month stay with us.
As we fundraised for our Sea Turtle Healing Center last week, our Healing Center experienced the first of what we believe to be many influxes of sea turtle patients.
