THE STRANDING This opportunistic little turtle was caught on hook and line by a charter fishing boat, the Vonda Kay. The captain noted the carapace injuries and brought the little turtle into our dock. Thanks, Dave Gardner.
THE TREATMENT The wounds were flushed and soaked in cleansing solutions.  The turtle is eating and seems in good health despite the injuries.
