Green sea turtle released after more than 3 months of recovery, rehab at CROW
The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) released a juvenile green sea turtle back into the ocean this week!
The turtle was admitted back on Nov. 4, 2019, with severe injuries to its face from some type of blunt force trauma.
The turtle had to undergo blood work, x-rays and a CT scan to help CROW see the extent of the damage and determine a treatment plan.
After several surgeries and continued antibiotics and pain medication, the turtle started to show improvement.
After more than three months of medical care and rehabilitation, the turtle was finally cleared for release.
