Reason for Stranding
Sea Turtle, Inc. intern Alicia found Tortilla 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.
Tortilla has large scrapes on her plastron (bottom shell).
Ways to help Tortilla'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.
