Sea Turtles Released for Christmas!
Shelmore ate an eel! And that wasn't good. After being taken care of at the Turtle Hospital, Sheldon was released in Islamorada early in the morning on December 29th.
Donatello, a 170 lb loggerhead was rescued in Tavernier Ceek in November. Suffering from an intestinal impaction, he too was treated by these awesome folks and released the same day in Marathon.
Thank you for your support!
We received soooo many baby turtle adoptions for the holidays and we wish to extend our most sincere thanks for your support! The most popular names for 2018 were Squirt & Crush, followed by Sheldon. My favorite this Christmas was Tiny Tim! Know that 100% of all adoptions goes towards our education and conservation efforts, as well as providing supplies for our beach walkers. Thank you again and flippers up!
