Where Do Sea Turtles Go When They Are Sick?

By February 25, 2011Ocean News

To a hospital of course! You might be asking yourself why Sea Turtles need a hospital? Well, it’s simple. There are many bad things that can happen to a Sea Turtle in the wild such as ingesting foreign objects (plastics and other garbage); getting entangled in discarded nets and crab traps, and boat damage to their shell or limbs. These animals cannot afford to die due to senseless human causes as all Sea Turtles are endangered from becoming extinct. The Sea Turtle hospitals are an important part of their recovery. Oceana alpng with Lauren Norman brings you a video tour of what goes on at a Sea Turtle Hospital. Enjoy!!!
