The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Four Hawksbills

Four post hatchling Hawksbill Sea Turtles were release near the Contents Keys. Olivia had been rescued from a bird attach and Alfredo, Evinrude and Schripsy had been found in different locations, floating and emaciated. The small turtles have been well fed and all are now strong, active and very aggressive eaters.


The Contents Keys area provides a shallow reef system with coral rock ledges and a variety of sponges which makes it an ideal habitat for Hawksbills.

Turtle Hospital Staff were taken out by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service which oversees the area Wildlife Refuges.
