Reason for Stranding
A kayaker found Lejos stranded in the mud near a boat ramp in the Laguna Madre near Arroyo City.
Lejos is very skinny and has an abnormal left lung which is why the turtle rests at an angle. Otherwise, Lejos has no significant visible wounds.
Ways to help Lejos's Recovery
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.
