This loggerhead suffered from a severe fishing line entanglement and femoral fracture to their front left flipper. A A fishing hook was removed from their throat via surgery, and they also had a few old boat strike injuries that left the carapace deformed. Unfortunately, about a week later Vader stopped passed away. We hope this sea turtle serves as an example of the importance of safe fishing and boating practices for marine life.
