Loggerhead Sea Turtle Sighting

This week, while conducting a dolphin survey in the Mosquito Lagoon, our biologists spotted a loggerhead sea turtle drifting at the surface and struggling to breathe. The emaciated, juvenile turtle was transported to the Marine Science Center in Ponce Inlet for rehabilitation. The turtle was covered in parasites and would not have survived much longer without assistance. We are always on the lookout for animals in need, and our hopeful this sea turtle will make a full recovery!
