Location: Stock Island
Reason: Washback, missing flipper
Mocho was found floating in a canal. Such small sea turtles like Mocho should not be inshore, they should be offshore in the Sargassum seaweed. He must have gotten washed back in and gotten stuck. He’s also missing his front left flipper, probably due to a predator attack.
Mocho was released 2/23/15 offshore.
