I acknowledge that my adoption is symbolic and I will not receive a live turtle in return for my donation, nor will I be able to handle or feed any turtle patient(s). As an Adoptive Parent, I understand that I will receive an electronic certificate package and monthly email updates that allow me to follow patient care and recovery from afar.

      About Jules

      Species: Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta)
      Age: Post-Hatchling
      Sex: Unknown
      Arrival: September 23, 2020
      Weight:  35 g / 1.2 oz 
      Found: Huguenot Memorial Park, Jacksonville, Florida
      Rescued by: Huguenot Memorial Park Ranger

      Why Jules is here:

      Jules' early days are somewhat mysterious. We know he/she spent some time at sea after hatching, but strong currents pushed the turtle back to land and it washed ashore on September 23rd, in Jacksonville, Florida. Jules was brought to our hospital for care, where he/she was treated for dehydration and given antibiotics for possible infections like pneumonia.
