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!
