The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Monay Released


Last Wednesday, Monay the Loggerhead was sent home from the beach at Bahia Honda State Park, close to where she was rescued last December.  She was seen off by a crowd of well over 100 people! Monay arrived at the Hospital suffering from a body cavity infection. After a few months of antibiotics and a lot of squid, she was ready to hit the waves again.

Each turtle that leaves our facility is tagged for future identification — two flipper tags and a microchip (same as with dogs and cats). With some luck we hope to see Monay laying eggs some time in the future!

Our thanks to Monay Markey who rescued the turtle, Bahia Honda State Park, and all who came out to see her off!
