Hang 10 the Kemp’s ridley

Hang 10 washed ashore on July 11, 2009 as a hatchling. Due to birth defects that affect her flipper, shell, and eye, she is unable to be released and is a permanent resident at our facility. When she was smaller, she traveled to local events and schools to educate the public. Now she is 10 years old and weighs 55 pounds. She is too big to travel, but don’t worry, Hang 10 is still doing the job of educating! You can find Hang 10 happily eating shrimp on any given day at our facility.
