Grogu's Story

Boat Collision & Floating

Grogu was rescued in Hobe Sound after they were found floating at the water’s surface. Their carapace had old boat collision wound markings,  which often leads sea turtles to “float” after they heal. Grogu also had a few Fibropapilloma tumors on their neck and flippers, a disease afflicting over 22% of dead or stranded sea turtles.
