The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Public Sea Turtle Release Saturday, December 29th!

Donatello, a 170 pound sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle is going home for the holidays! Join us for a Public Sea Turtle Release this Saturday, December 29th on Sombrero Beach in Marathon. Donatello was rescued in November in Tavernier Creek on the bayside. Donatello was treated at the Turtle Hospital for an intestinal impaction. Treatment at the Turtle Hospital included broad spectrum antibiotics, lactulose, vitamins and a healthy diet. Donatello is now healthy and ready to return to her ocean home. The Turtle Hospital ambulance will arrive with Donatello at Sombrero Beach at 10:30 a.m. with release promptly at 11:00 a.m. Bring your family and your friends to help us celebrate Donatello’s return to sea!
