 Stranded 4/10/2013

Avae was found by an island visitor right in front of the Tiki Hotel. She had no wounds or abnormalities but her shell was covered in algae. The turtle had washed up in a patch of sargassum and was so small that she narrowly missed getting stepped on by beach-goers! Avae is currently residing in an ICU tank with 4 other post-hatchling hawksbills. She will be released later in 2013.


April 2014 Update: Avae is currently swimming in rehabilitation tank 7 with other 5 other hawksbills. She is doing very well!

Released 6/28/2014

One of the three primary missions at Sea Turtle, Inc. is rehabilitation. We work hard to rescue and return every sea turtle back to the wild. Proceeds from this adoption will go directly to purchase needed medical supplies, veterinary exams, x-rays, food and general care for our rehab turtles.
