Stranded 9/20/2014

Peaches is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. She was accidentally hooked by a fisherman at the Isla Blanca jetties. The fisherman noticed that she had a large wound on her head and called Sea Turtle, Inc. for help. Peaches had been hit by a boat and the propeller had left a deep slice on her head. Miraculously, the wound had already started to heal on its own and the turtle’s overall health was not very bad. We cleaned the wound and she is currently being monitored in ICU.

October Update: Peaches wound has healed very well. She is healthy and has been cleared for release.
