Rehabilitated Sea Turtle Release (Leechy)

 

Our loggerhead sea turtle patient Leechy is ready for release! She has had an incredible recovery in the last 10 weeks here at Sea Turtle, Inc. Join us in wishing her a healthy life and safe travels!

Leechy stranded on May 14th in poor body condition, covered in marine leeches, and with terrible blood values. All of the issues Leechy had on arrival at our facility have resolved! She has gained 20 lbs, recovered from severe anemia and buoyancy issues, and has killed and eaten live prey (crabs)!
