Due to her injuries, she was not a candidate to be re-released. Officials in Louisiana contacted us and asked if we had room for another sea turtle, and we did! So arrangements were made and the turtle was flown from New Orleans to Boston earlier this week.
Check out some pictures of the new turtle getting a physical examination from our vet staff.
After about a month of quarantine behind the scenes she will be put in the Giant Ocean Tank where she will join our other rescued sea turtles, Scute, Retread, and Carolina, and of course Myrtle too. (Find out how much each of these turtles weigh by reading this post.)
