Cuyahoga's Story

Boat Strike Blues

Cuyahoga is a sub-adult green sea turtle rescued from Boynton Beach. In this case, a boat propeller sliced a portion of the carapace off exposing bone and coelomic lining. 

Luckily this sea turtle is undergoing treatment at the Nature Center and we hope that our care will allow us to send them back home soon.
