Acadia's Story

Rescued from the Dania Beach Pier, this sea turtle named Acadia arrived for rehabilitation with fishing hooks in each of their front flippers. Acadia also exhibited signs of pneumonia in the lungs and lethargy. After just a few short weeks, Acadia made a quick recovery and has since been released!
