Public Sea Turtle Release Saturday January 11, 2020

Join us for a public sea turtle release Saturday January 11th at Higg’s Beach behind Salute Restaurant, 1000 Atlantic Blvd, Key West. We will arrive at 10:30 am in the turtle ambulance and the release is promptly at 11:00 am.

Bring your family and friends to see the amazing transformations and to help cheer as we return 3 juvenile green sea turtles to their ocean home! Craig, Daredevil and Olive were all rescued in the lower Keys in the Spring of last year and rehabilitated at The Turtle Hospital. All three turtles were treated for Fibropapillomatosis, a disease specific to sea turtles characterized by debilitating epithelial tumors. They are now tumor free! Treatment included tumor removal surgeries, chemotherapy eye drops, broad spectrum antibiotics, vitamins, and a healthy diet of greens and seafood. Craig, Daredevil, and Olive will arrive in the turtle ambulance at 10:30 am, with release promptly at 11:00 am. See you there!
