Stranded 7/3/2010

Mona is a post-hatchling Kemp’s ridley sea turtle. She stranded right after Hurricane Alex in 2010. Mona is missing 3/4 of her front left flipper. Despite this injury, she is a very spunky sea turtle. She is well-known by the staff  for being “the fiesty one” and she always puts up a strong fight during any medical check-ups. She will be released in the summer of 2013. We hope the ocean is ready for her!

Released 11/4/2013
