The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Watch Finn Swim!

Finn survived a predator attack in the wild, arriving at The Turtle Hospital with only one fully functional fipper, the other three being nubs. Nevertheless, she has taught herself to swim, dive and forage off the bottom! Check out the video below!

Our “One Flipper Wonder” is quite the survivor, and her rehab story is one typical of sea turtles involving determination, adapation and resilience.  What better way to learn of Finn’s maneuvering capabilities than to watch the turtle in action? Click here to watch a video of Finn swimming, diving and foraging.  At about 1 year old, and having been at The Turtle Hospital for half that time, Finn continues to inspire many visitors around the world who have learned of her fighting spirit!
