Despite every 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.
Unfortunately, a boat propeller had recently struck the shell and head, leaving horrific and gruesome tissue and eye damage. We weren’t able to save Ewok, and euthanized upon arrival, as there was little left we could do to help with the injuries.
