Alvarez’s Release!

Rescued about two weeks ago off Key Largo, this subadult loggerhead is tagged and awaiting release!  Join us for a public send-off at Anne’s Beach (East entrance) on Sunday, June 24 at 1:30 PM.

Found floating, Alvarez received Bean-o and lactulose along with a round of fluids and antibiotics.  This treatment plan was intended to fight off potential infections or impacted material in the digestive tract.  This turtle’s health is in strong condition!  With a hearty appetite, Alvarez is anxiously awaiting getting back into the ocean to hunt some conch, lobster and crab!
