Stranded 11/28/2013

Justin is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. He was found floating in the bay due to cold stranding. He had a broken front left flipper for unknown reasons. Surgery was done to try to fix the flipper but unfortunately the break was so severe that it had to be amputated. He is currently recovering in our ICU.

January Update: Justin recovered very well from his amputation and is currently swimming in rehabilitation tank 4! He will most likely be released in April of 2014.
