Current Patients

Rehabilitation of sick and injured sea turtles is an important part of Sea Turtle, Inc's mission to save sea turtles! Each year, we rehabilitate anywhere from 40-100+ patients and release them back to the ocean. The rehabilitation process can take days, months, or sometimes years, depending on our patient and its injury. Below, you can check out patients currently rehabilitating and awaiting release.

Don't forget to take a look at our non-releaseable turtles on our Residents page!
