Stranded 7/1//2010

Paloma is a post-hatchling Kemp’s ridley sea turtle. She stranded after Hurricane Alex hit South Padre Island in 2010. She is missing a small chunk of her left front flipper and a small chunk of her shell on the right side. Paloma is recovering very well and will go back to the wild in summer of 2013.
