Ziro comes to our turtle rehabilitation center with an obvious, yet luckily treatable, hook injury.

Han Solo

This little smuggler was a washback, which means she was not strong enough to stay out at sea after hatching. She’s also a special case since she’s one of just a few Hawksbill Sea Turtles we see in our waters each year.

Rey

Despite our best efforts, Rey came to us with one of the most severe boat strikes we’ve seen, and we were unable to help.

Star Wars

Star Wars is another sad story all too common. We found Star Wars with extremely severe Fibropapillomatosis (FP), that would not allow for an acceptable quality of life. Star Wars was euthanized shortly after intake.

Ewok

Despite every turtle we’re able to save, there are still far too many sad stories like Ewok’s. A passing boat noticed Ewok floating in the Boynton Intracoastal, and did their best to save her.

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren was rescued from the Deerfield Pier after an unfortunate encounter with a fishing hook. She had a hook in her jaw in addition to 3 within her digestive tract. Luckily her hook removal surgery was a success.
