The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.


















Arrival: 6/28/17

Species: Loggerhead

Weight: 125 lbs

Location: Florida Bay

Reason: Boat Strike

BIO: This Loggerhead turtle was found while NOAA & FWC were out in the Florida Bay conducting research. TOMO has a wound on it’s plastron that is infected due to the boat strike.

UPDATED: 1/22/18 My boat strike on my plastron is taking a while to heal. The strike did cut through some muscle so Tomo only has limited range of motion with its back right flipper.











UPDATED: 2/28/18 Getting the royal treatment of love by the rehabbers.












UPDATED: 5/14/18 Released!!!!!!
