Stranded 7/24/2015

Olivia Jr. is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. She was accidently hooked by a fisherman in Dolphin Cove at Isla Blanca Park. From the outside, it seemed that just her flipper had been hooked and the hook was easily removed, however, x-rays of the turtle revealed that she had also swallowed one. Our vet tech successfully removed the hook and Olivia Jr. is currently recovering in the ICU.

August Update: Olivia Jr. has been moved to an outside rehabilitation tank and is cleared for release before the end of 2015.

Released 9/19/2015
