Gwynne was found floating near Parrot Eyes on South Padre Island. She was covered in mud, algae and barnacles. She also has a small puncture wound on her plastron (bottom shell). The reason for her stranding is unknown, but we are starting to noticed that she is having some buoyancy problems while swimming. This may be due to a past injury or an illness (sometimes this can be caused by pneumonia. She will continue to be monitored in our ICU.
March Update: Gwynne has been moved to rehabilitation tank 5 and will be released in the spring!!
