Species: Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta)
Arrival: September 23, 2020
Weight: 35 g / 1.2 oz
Found: Huguenot Memorial Park, Jacksonville, Florida
Rescued by: Huguenot Memorial Park Ranger
Why the hatchling is here:
The 2020 Loggerhead Sea Turtle Hatchling’s early days are somewhat mysterious. We know it spent some time at sea after it hatched, but strong currents pushed it back to land and it washed ashore on September 23rd, in Jacksonville, Florida. It was brought to our hospital for care, where it was treated for dehydration and given antibiotics for possible infections like pneumonia.
