A Salute to Captain Gene

Save-A-Turtle volunteers, President Rick Sall and his wife Lori, help release a green sea turtle named Captain Gene off of Turtle Hospital founder Richie Moretti’s boat on September 1. Captain Gene was treated at The Turtle Hospital for fibropapilloma disease and underwent seven surgical procedures to remove the debilitating tumors. Rick Sall helped to rescue Captain Gene and named him after a friend who later died from cancer.
