Public Sea Turtle Release

JOIN us for a Public Sea Turtle Release on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14th at Higg’s Beach in Key West (behind Salute’ restaurant).  Bring your sweetheart, family and friends to help cheer for two beautiful sea turtles returning to their ocean home!  Port and Starboard, juvenile green sea turtles, weighing in at 20 and 50 pounds were rescued together in November of last year off the Lower Keys.  The turtles were treated at the Turtle Hospital for fibropapillomatosis.  Treatments included tumor removal surgeries, broad spectrum antibiotics, fluid treatment, vitamins, and a healthy diet of greens and mixed seafood.  Both turtles are back to good health and ready to return to the sea!  The marine turtles will arrive in the turtle ambulance at 8:40 a.m., with release promptly at 9:00 a.m. See you there!
