Monika LFF base 2.26.17

Monika was found wedged in the rocks at the Isla Blanca jetties. She is currently being administered antibiotics, vitamins, and fluids. She was placed in the outdoor tank with the other FP-free little greens on 2/26. Monika is eating on her own and is receiving cold laser treatments to help heal her wounds.

March 22 Update:  Monika is still receiving cold laser treatments but has finished her course of meds. She is gaining weight and we have hopes for an April release.

April 20 Update: Going home on 4/28!!!
