The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Join us for Mike’s Release Saturday 11/19

Join us on Saturday November 19th at 10 am at Sombrero Beach as we release Mike!




Mike, a 105 pound loggerhead sea turtle will be returned to his ocean home on Saturday, November 19th at 10:00 a.m.  Mike was rescued the end of September where he was found floating on Washerwoman’s Shoal off Marathon, Florida Keys.   The Turtle Hospital enlisted the help of US Coast Guard Marathon Station to rescue the sick turtle.


Mike was anemic and suffering from an intestinal impaction.  Treatment at the Turtle Hospital included antibiotics, vitamins, iron, lactulose and a healthy diet of fish and squid.  Mike is fully recovered and ready to swim free!   Please join us to celebrate his return to the ocean on Saturday at Sombrero Beach, Marathon.  The turtle ambulance will arrive at the beach at 9:30 a.m. with release promptly at 10:00 a.m.  See you there!
