Peanut

Background

On May 1, 2016, sightings of a large sea turtle near Peanut Island were reported to Florida Fish & Wildlife (FWC). Snorkelers in the area reported the adult loggerhead lingering on the nearshore reefs and appearing to be in poor condition. Photographs from the snorkelers confirmed the extreme emaciation of this turtle and efforts were undertaken by FWC officials to transport the sick turtle to a rehabilitation facility. Peanut, named after the island she was rescued on, arrived at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center's Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility in critical condition and received immediate medical care. After 7 months of intense rehabilitation, Peanut has been cleared for release by our veterinarian. She was released on December 6, 2016 from Boca Raton, Florida. We're excited to see where her journey takes her!
