Reason for Stranding
A volunteer found Hurley floating in the Laguna Madre with a heavy load of barnacles.
Severe inflammation occurred causing the keratin, the top colorful layer, to separate from the rest of the shell. The light gray color you see is exposed bone. Over time, the darker keratin layer will start to regenerate and the bone will no longer be exposed.
Ways to help Hurley Mac's Recovery
Adopt Hurley Mac
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.
