Kona was found stranded on the beach in a large pile of Sargassum. He had an odd discoloration on the tips of his flippers. Closer examination shows that he has a bacteria that is affecting the scales on his flippers. He is being quarantined in case the bacteria is contagious to other turtles.

May update: Kona has made great improvements and has been moved to a rehabilitation tank! She hass been cleared for release!
