Stella Polare è una grossa femmina di Caretta caretta catturata accidentalmente con il palangrese a Bova Marina (RC) il 7 Giugno 2016 dai pescatori Antonio Callea e Francesco Larizza, che con grande sensibilità hanno deciso di salvarle la vita contattando il Centro di Recupero Tartarughe Marine di Brancalone (Rc). Trasferita, quindi, all'ospedale delle tartarughe marine è stata sottoposta alle prime visite e indagini diagnostiche. Le condizioni dell'esemplare, lungo 69 cm circa per un peso di 35 kg, sono apparse buone, poichè grazie al soccorso tempestivo offerto dai pescatori, è stato possibile intervenire in tempo e rimuovere l'amo da pesca, prima che la tartaruga si debilitasse.
