Boerneboerne on facebook is a beautiful Atlantic green juvenile. Tina & Michael Hollenbaugh, formerly from Boerne, saw him swimming off the jetties, distressed and entangled in fishing line. They called us after hours,  then jet skied out to pick him up and delivered him Dolphin Cove, where assistant curator Kat Lillie met them.  Boerne  is very active in his ICU pool, but we are still running diagnostics at the time of this writing.

September Update:  Boerne has been moved to an outdoor rehabilitation tank and is swimming well with friend CJ. Both are being prepared for an October release.

October UpdateBoerne will be released the week on 10/17. Follow facebook posts for date and time!
