chance with questionChance’s rescue was a bit dramatic! It started with a call from Boca Chica. Salvador Villareal and Hannah Solis found Chance wedged in the rocks of the jetties. Boca Chica, by car, is typically a 3 hour round trip drive. On a Spring Break Saturday???? Who knows!!! So…Chris Devlin, former intern and spouse to our Conservation Coordinator, Mariana, kayaked  from the island over to Boca Chica and retrieved Chance, saving staff member a full day’s work! Chance is doing well. He is in isolation until diagnostics are complete. Note the red ? on his carapace, within the green outline. These little turtles look so similar that we needed an easy way to identify them in order to distribute appropriate medical treatment and for accurate record keeping. The idea of the  ? on Chance came from Monopoly cards!
