Join us for a Public Sea Turtle Release this Wednesday, May 22nd on Sombrero Beach in Marathon. Sky Woman, a juvenile green sea turtle beat the odds and is returning to her ocean home! Sky Woman was rescued in November of last year off Tavernier where she was found floating in a canal on the oceanside. Sky Woman had fishing line tightly wrapped around her neck, the constriction wound went so deep, it cut into her trachea. Sky Woman had several surgeries to repair her trachea. Treatment at the Turtle Hospital also included tumor removal surgery, therapy laser, broad spectrum antibiotics, lactulose, vitamins and a healthy diet. Sky Woman has made an amazing recovery and is back to good health! The Turtle Hospital ambulance will arrive with Sky Woman at Sombrero Beach at 1:10 p.m. with release promptly at 1:30 p.m.. Bring your family and your friends to help us celebrate Sky Woman’s return to sea!
