Ziro's Story

An unfortunate hook injury

Ziro comes to our turtle rehabilitation center with an obvious, yet luckily treatable, hook injury. Ziro was found near the Deerfield Pier, and the hook even impacted this turtle’s airway. We were quick to remove the hook and were proud to see a speedy recovery. Ziro is back at sea, and we hope to never see her again!
