– Hubb’s Dolphin Surveyors Save Entangled Turtle

Our Florida team got more than they bargained for on this week’s dolphin survey in the Halifax River:  after spending the morning searching for dolphins, and picking up garbage along the way, they saw a sea turtle caught on a fisherman’s line. Fortunately, they were able to bring the turtle on board and call the proper authorities at Volusia County Environmental Management, who picked up the turtle.

The female loggerhead was transported to the nearby Marine Science Center sea turtle hospital where she’ll receive expert care and hopefully be returned back to the estuary soon.
