This sub-adult Loggerhead sea turtle was found floating near Key Largo on Memorial Day weekend 2004. Jersey Girl had a severe liver and pancreas infection. After high doses of antibiotics and a lot of TLC, Jersey Girl is on her way to recovery.
UPDATE: Jersey Girl has improved significantly over the last few months. She has graduated to an 800 gallon tank and is eating about 30 squid a day to regain the weight she had lost during her illness.
RELEASED: Jersey Girl was released on February 22, 2005 near the seven mile bridge. Being placed at this location, she had the choice of either venturing out to the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean.
