Lost a few

The past few days have not been kind with regards to our turtles. The two newest additions, Finn and Greta, both died. Unfortunately we still don’t really know what was wrong with them. They have both been transported to the local folks at FWC where they will eventually be necropsied to try and determine the cause of death. Both turtles were exceptionally beautiful (though we tend to think all of our turtles here are beautiful!) and we never like losing any of them. Our hope now is that perhaps through the necropsies they will contribute to our knowledge of about sea turtles and help us do a better job of both protecting them and caring for them in the future.

Bobo is leaving tomorrow. FWC will be taking the turtle north to Brevard County where it will be released back to the sea.
