Stranded 8/27/2015

Wonder Turtle is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. He was found in the shipping channel near the Boca Chica jetties by Scarlet Colley. He had fishing line tightly wrapped around both front flippers and his neck. Unfortunately, the front right flipper had already lost all its circulation and started to deteriorate due to lack of blood flow. It was amputated on 8/28/2015. Wonder Turtle is recovering well from the surgery and is being monitored in our ICU.
