“Sea turtles will look you in the eye. If you get a little twinge when they do, it’s because they’re looking into your soul, and you’re looking into theirs.”

Sea Turtle Stories



SPECIES: Caretta caretta

THE STRANDING: Snookie’s stranding was a bit of a mystery. She certainly wasn’t one of our “Barnacle Bill” turtles that come in emaciated and covered with all sorts of sea life. She was obviously pretty smart and very lucky as she had minimal injuries and just a few scars from all of those years living in the wild. She was eating well, and even arrived with a cooler full of her favorite food – conch. But something was just not right with her. And so began our year-long ongoing quest to figure it out.
