Shenaynay’s Release

Oct 14, 2007

SHENAYNAY a juvenile Green Sea Turtle was admitted in June 2007, due to having part of a fish hook in her throat. (well meaning fishermen had attempted to remove the hook but the turtle ended up swallowing a portion of it). Dr Doug Mader and staff used an endoscope and long “grabbers” to address the problem.


After treatment with antibiotics, vitamins and being well fed, Shenaynay was released in the Gulf, approximately 12 miles North of Marathon.
