Robbie is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. He was found by visitors on the county beaches of SPI. He had no severe physical injuries but some small scrapes on his shell suggest that he may have been nibbled on by a predator. Additionally he has several large barnacles, including one that is attached to his head. To remove barnacles, we will let the turtle live in fresh water for several days. Fresh water does not hurt sea turtles for short periods of time and it will kill the barnacle and cause it to fall off.

Robbie is expected to make a quick recovery!
