Stranded 1/11/2015

Ziggy is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. He was found floating in the Laguna Madre during a severe cold front. He had gone into a state of "cold shock" becuase of low temperatures and was hit by a boat while floating in the bay. Ziggy's wounds are very severe and he is currently being treated in our ICU. We are treating his wound with different antibiotics and also utilizing honey to help speed up the healing process.

March Update: Ziggy is doing well and has been moved out to Rehabilitation Tank 5

June Update: Ziggy has been cleared for release! He will most likely go back to the ocean by the end of the summer, 2015!
