Noel’s Release on Saturday April 4, 2015 at 12:30 pm in Key West
The Turtle Hospital is excited to announce a public sea turtle release scheduled for Saturday, April 4th at 12:30 p.m. Please join us on Higg’s Beach behind Salute restaurant, 1000 Atlantic Blvd., Key West as we cheer on Noel, a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle. Noel was found floating offshore of Key Largo on Christmas Day. X-rays revealed Noel was suffering from an impaction in her intestines. Treatment at the Turtle Hospital consisted of broad spectrum antibiotics, lactulose, beano, vitamins, and a diet of fish and squid. Noel passed her impaction and is now healthy and ready to return to her ocean home.
Noel will arrive in the turtle ambulance at Higg’s Beach at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. release. See you there!
