Fiona, a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle, will be returned to her ocean home on Saturday, October 22nd at 10:00 am. Fiona was rescued at the end of July, just offshore of Crane Hammock Subdivision in Marathon. Fiona was emaciated and entangled in fishing line and had ingested fishing line. Treatment for Fiona included broad spectrum antibiotics, IV nutrition, cold laser therapy, vitamins, iron, lactulose, and a healthy diet of fish and squid. Fiona is fully recovered and has gained 15 pounds! Please join us to celebrate her return to the ocean on Saturday at Sombrero Beach, Marathon. The turtle ambulance will arrive at the beach at 9:30 am, with release promptly at 10:00 am. See you there!
