THE STRANDING Rescued from the beach at Holden Beach and transported to the KBSTRRC by Holden Beach volunteers, this small green sea turtle has injuries consistent with boat propeller strikes.  The right eye is severely damaged and will probably not be saved.
 
THE TREATMENT The wounds are flushed every other day to clean out debris and other living things. Despite the deep gash to the head and the large amount of exposed tissue, this small turtle is not showing signs of neurological damage. We have hope that surgery will be beneficial.
