Hatchling's Story

Hatchlings are currently in our rehabilitation facility. We typically take in green sea turtle, loggerhead sea turtle, and hawskbill sea turtle hatchlings that were too weak or emaciated to initially make it out to the ocean. After recovering, the healthy hatchlings will be released back into the ocean once again.
