Heath, the previous patient in this rehab pool, has been released! He was accidentally caught by a fisherman and had ingested a fish hook. The hook was successfully removed orally without the need for surgery! You can read more about Heath’s rescue, rehab, and release by visiting Heath’s Release.
There are several sea turtle rehab pools at CMA with rescued sea turtles recovering. You can learn more about our current animal hospital patients and view them when you visit the animal hospital at Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Do you see a sleeping turtle? Although turtles are air-breathers, they often prefer to sleep on the floor of their pool while they rest. Don’t worry if you see a turtle resting on the bottom. While resting on the floor, turtles will surface to breathe, then may swim right back to their resting position on the bottom to sleep some more!
