The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

New Patient “MJ”

MJ, a 48lb green turtle was rescued by an FWC officer today in Whale Harbor. MJ had monofilament wrapped around her/his FP tumors, making it hard for her/him to swim. This is a reminder to please fish responsibly and dispose of all fishing line appropriately.


A huge thank you to Officer Wilkins and all of our FWC officers for your ongoing support in rescuing these turtles and for all your hard work in keeping our waters and wildlife safe.
