Reason for Stranding
Sea Turtle, Inc. intern Rachel found Dub stuck in the rocks at the Boca Chica jetties. Juvenile green sea turtles will often forage on the algae that grows along the rock face when the tides are high and end up stuck when the tide recedes.
Feb 2020- No longer receiving any medications or medical treatments. Each week, Dub gets a physical exam and an updated weight. Dub will be ready for release in March!
Jan 2020- Dub is doing well! Great energy and appetite. Just waiting for the deep plastron abrasion to heal.
There are minor scrapes on Dub’s shell but otherwise, no major injuries.
Ways to help Dub's Recovery
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.
