Quincy's Story

Chronic Debilitation

Quincy was a juvenile green sea turtle that was rescued after being discovered floating in the intracoastal waterway near the Hillsboro Beach Inlet. They were extremely weak and lethargic, suffering from chronic debilitation. Despite thorough veterinary examination and a supportive care regiment, Quincy succumbed to their ailments and sadly passed away naturally just nine days after admission.
