How to Help a Hooked Sea Turtle

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.
