The Turtle Hospital is excited to announce a public sea turtle release scheduled for Saturday, February 27th at 12:00 p.m. off of Higg’s Beach behind Salute restaurant, 1000 Atlantic Blvd., Key West .
Please join us as we cheer on Comet, a 90 pound loggerhead sea turtle! Comet was rescued in December where she was found floating and struggling to dive off of No Name Key. Comet had a fishing hook lodged in the base of her rear flipper. X-rays revealed Comet also had an intestinal impaction. After lots of TLC and a treatment plan including broad spectrum antibiotics, lactulose, beano, vitamins and a healthy diet of squid and fish here at the Turtle Hospital, Comet is fully recovered, gained almost 10 pounds and is swimming and diving well. Come share the excitement as Comet returns to her ocean home! Compassion is contagious!
