X Wing's Story

X Wing was floating after a boat strike

X Wing came to us from Pompano Beach where they were floating after a boat strike. The Turtle Team got right to action stabilizing bleeding from the fracture, as well as antibiotics to steer recovery. Unfortunately, this turtle was unable to recover from a lacerated lung and intestinal tear and passed away.
