Boudreaux, the Non-releasable Atlantic Green

On July 6, a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle stranded at the Mansfield jetties. His front limbs were entangled in mono-filament line that was still attached to an old fishing rod. All that was left of his front right flipper was a bone fragment sticking out. He had already lost his back left flipper to a prior injury. Typically, sea turtles with less than 75% of their flippers are not released into the wild, therefore, Boudreaux is now our newest education sea turtle. He recently had surgery to remove the bone fragment and is recovering in our ICU. You can visit Boudreaux in the ICU or monitor his recovery on our ICU Livecam!
