Reason for Stranding
A visitor found Resurrectus (Latin for arisen) stranded upside down on the beach just north of the facility. Initially, we thought Resurrectus was dead until the turtle moved its flippers. The left hind flipper is completely gone, as well as the majority of the right front flipper. Both of these injuries have completely healed.
There was evidence Resurrectus had eaten plastic. There were also a few small scrapes on the bottom of the shell. Otherwise, there are no major injuries.
Ways to help Surrectus'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.
