Kaze is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle that was found stuck in the under water in the rocks at the Boca Chica jetties by one of our interns who was patrolling Boca Chica for nesting mamas. Kaze weighs about 6 lbs, is in good body condition, and has normal blood values. Kaze began eating immediately upon admission to our hospital! Kaze defecated a small piece of balloon on 6/5/17…many people that do balloon releases do not think about where their balloons might end up – like in a GI tract of a sea turtle. Fortunately Kaze is doing very well and will likely be released in by July!

Ways to help Kaze's Recovery

Adopt Kaze

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.
