Acadia's Story

Acadia came to us with the all too common ailment of a hook injury. We rescued this turtle from the Dania Beach Pier, with hooks in each of their flippers. Acadia also exhibited signs of pneumonia in the lungs and lethargy. Luckily, Acadia made a quick recovery and has since been released!
