Reason for Stranding
4.3 lb juvenile green
-SPI lifeguards saw the turtle struggling to dive on the channel side of the Isla Blanca jetties and were finally able to net the turtle after an hour of treading water
-the lifeguards named the turtle Slider because it kept “sliding out of their hands” during the rescue
-PE (physical exam): entangled in monofilament line around the neck and the right front flipper (both tightly wrapped inline), moderate plastron abrasions
Ways to help Slider'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.
