Queen Amidala's Story

Queen Amidala captured our hearts

Queen Amidala is a massive adult green sea turtle who has quickly captured our hearts. We found her floating near the St. Lucie River, where she was struggling with a boat strike on the center of her head that left a visible wound.

The scar is healing nicely, and Queen Amidala is slowly but surely regaining weight, despite her refined taste for expensive algae! Queen A is currently recovering in our Sea Turtle Rehab Facility and will be released in the weeks ahead.
