Mae was founding floating in the Laguna Madre near the “fingers” area of Port Isabel. She is a post-hatchling hawksbill sea turtle. Mae has no physical injuries but is weak and very skinny. She may have washed in due to high tides and strong currents caused by recent Gulf storms. She is in ICU receiving fluids and vitamins.
