Marson is a juvenile hawksbill sea turtle.  was found floating in the shipping channel, unable to dive. A family on a dolphin watch crew found the turtle and called him into Sea Turtle, Inc. He was also missing chunks from his back flippers and covered in sand and algae. His reason for stranding is unknown.

Update: In April Marson was moved into ICU to join our other juvenile hawskbill, Suerte. Marson has improved immensely, has a great appetite, and is able to dive with no problems.
