Quince is a hatchling Atlantic green sea turtle who was brought in by a woman from Utah. His name is the Spanish number “fifteen.” This turtle has small predator bites out of his back flippers. His condition has improved greatly since he was brought in and he is now starting to eat small bits of shrimp. He will be kept in the hatchling tanks in our ICU until he grows to a larger size. Quince is considered a releasable turtle when he grows to a larger size.

Update: Quince is currently swimming in rehabilitation tank 1 with other juvenile green sea turtles. He will be released summer 2014!

Adopt Quince

One of the three primary missions at Sea Turtle, Inc. is rehabilitation. We work hard to rescue and return every sea turtle back to the wild. Proceeds from this adoption will go directly to purchase needed medical supplies, veterinary exams, x-rays, food and general care for our rehab turtles.
