Frida  is an fridaadult Kemp’s ridley  female found by Michael, Stefanie and Hannah Bean near Schlitterbahn. Frida was very non responsive. No obvious injuries. It is believed she is a victim of red tide. A neurotoxin in the algae called brevetoxin affects the turtles’ nerves and muscles, keeping them from swimming and diving properly, causing them to strand. She has been in detox mode since arrival and is responding. She should be in an outdoor rehabilitation tank soon, preparing for release.
