The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Join us for Saddle’s Release!

Saddle, our feistiest current patient, is ready to head back into the sea!  Help us wish Saddle farewell and good luck at Bahia Honda State Park (north beach) on Saturday, July 7 at 10:00 AM.

This young loggerhead was lucky to be found by park rangers of the Overseas Heritage Trail on April 27.  Arriving severely emaciated and malnourished, Saddle was in surprisingly high spirits–attempting to bite any- and everything, left and right!  Likely floating from an impaction prior to the stranding, Saddle had been sick for quite some time.  Nevertheless, she gained 20 lbs in 2 weeks–one of the fastest recoveries to date! We are excited for Saddle to soon be swimming in the open ocean again!
