Ewok's Story

Despite every sea turtle we're able to save, there are still far too many sad stories.

A passing boat noticed Ewok floating in the Boynton Intracoastal, and did their best to save them. A boat propeller had recently struck the carapace (top shell) and head, leaving severe tissue and eye damage. Unfortunately Ewok’s injuries were untreatable and too severe for survival.
