Wolf was found by a couple of our volunteers on Boca Chica Beach. The turtle was extremely emaciated and had a deep, dime-sized wound on his upper right flipper and additional scrapes all over his shell. He has been in ICU since his arrival. After intense fluid and vitamin therapy and a round of antibiotics, his wounds had not improved. A second round of antibiotics showed little improvement as well. He may have a fungal infection that is slowing his recovery. Blood tests will give us additional information on his health and he may be started on anti-fungals in the close future. His release status is undetermined.
