Sea Turtle Rehab Pool T3
This webcam shows you a view of sea turtle rehab pool T3, where Jujube is currently rehabilitating.
Jujube is a sub-adult, Kemp’s ridley who was found floating on September 4. She had a wound to her right front flipper and a large lesion on her neck. She was also missing a small part of her carapace (shell), but that area was completely healed and is unrelated to her floating. You can read more about Jujube’s story and follow along with her updates by visiting Jujube’s hospital patient page.
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!
