Reason for Stranding
Floating Found By Boater
11.0 lb juvenile FP green
-found by a boat captain floating near Barracuda Cove
FP in both eyes but both parts of both corneas are visible (hard to tell in the photos), looks like a possible old boat strike on the caudal end of the carapace (healed)
-moderate barnacle & algae load, marine leech eggs, and adult marine leeches
Cove has anemia, so we will treat with Iron injections weekly -started on Ceftazidime, Vit B Complex & fluids
Ways to help Cove's Recovery
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.
