Reason for Stranding
Visitors spotted Nickelback struggling to dive close to the jetties in Isla Blanca Park. Fishing line attached to the rocks entangled the turtle.
Nickelback has an old wound on the right front flipper but otherwise, no major wounds or abnormalities.
Ways to help NICKELBACK'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.
