Reginald Survives a Boat Strike

Another green sea turtle came to us on March 13th with an old boat strike to the back end of the carapace, coupled with developing FP tumors. Reginald was malnourished and had some buoyancy issues upon arrival but is moving around much better these days. Unfortunately, spinal damage has caused partial paralysis in the back flippers. The good news is Reggie has become a champion eater, and we’re seeing weekly improvements in the turtle’s blood chemistry.
