Bring your family and friends to see the amazing transformation help to cheer as we return Tommy, a juvenile green sea turtle to his ocean home! Tommy was rescued north of Tavernier Creek in the upper Keys last April and rehabilitated at the Turtle Hospital.  Tommy was treated for Fibropapillomatosis, a disease specific to sea turtles characterized by debilitating epithelial tumors.  Tommy is back in good health and tumor free!  Treatment included tumor removal surgeries, broad spectrum antibiotics, vitamins and a healthy diet of greens and seafood.  Tommy will arrive in the turtle ambulance at 11:30 a.m., with release promptly at 12:00 p.m.  See you there!
