Species: Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta)
Age: Juvenile (3 months - 10 years)
Arrival: July 27, 2020
Weight: 26 kg / 58 lbs
Found: Jekyll Sound - Jekyll Island, GA
Rescued by: Endangered Species Observer
Why Athena is here: Athena was found in the marsh of the Jekyll Sound near Jekyll Island, Georgia. An endangered species observer assisting with removal operations for the overturned Golden Ray Cargo Ship rescued Athena. It is unlikely that Athena's condition is related to the Golden Ray shipwreck; rather, we determined this turtle is debilitated. He/she was underweight, weak, and severely anemic upon arrival. Athena also had a moderate load of epibiota (living creatures) attached to the shell and skin. Join Athena's adoptive family to follow his/her rehabilitation progress!
