Reason for Stranding
Sea Turtle, Inc. field tech Luke found Dante stuck in the rocks at the Boca Chica jetties. Juvenile green sea turtles will often forage on the algae that grows along the rock face when the tides are high and end up stuck when the tide recedes.
Dante had exposed dead bone on the shell and scratches from the rocks. There is also keratin missing from the top of the shell and more that is flaking off.
Ways to help Dante'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.
