The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

23 Hatchlings Released!

Green hatchlings return to sea by the hands of our handy-dandy maintenance man, Bruce.

After varying lengths of stay at The Turtle Hospital, a total of 23 rescued hatchlings were released yesterday directly into the Gulf Stream.  This time around, staff member Bruce participated in the release.  All of our 19 green baby turtles and 4 loggerhead babies are now floating along in the jet stream, where they will spend the next few years camouflaging from predators in beds of Sargassum seaweed.

Gathered from 3 separate tanks, the Rehab staff said farewell and good luck to 23 hatchlings prior to release at sea.
