The Lennie Turtle
Lennie is the one permanent resident sea turtle at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center and we are celebrating her 15th year at our center. Lennie was stranded in Beaufort, NC on October 18, 2006 and suffered blunt force head trauma. As a result of her injuries, she is blind and unable to be released back to the ocean. Lennie has recovered from her injuries and is a star of our visitor tours! Lennie's food of choice is squid, she loves getting her back (carapace) brushed and enjoys napping on the floor of her tank.
The Lennie Turtle is a soft squeezable plush of the Kemp's Ridley sea turtle species that comes in two sizes, 8" and 10".
