Background

More than 1,200 cold-stunned Kemp’s ridley sea turtles stranded during the months of November and December of 2014 in New England. With such large stranding numbers, many of these turtles had to be transferred to other locations for care. These turtles were transported to many different rehabilitation facilities in the US. They were placed in banana boxes and flown by US coastguard planes to their new temporary destinations for treatments. Gumbo Limbo Nature Center’s Rehabilitation Facility (GLRF) opened its doors to 11 cold-stunned patients in need of some TLC due to the severe cold water temperatures. Most of the GLRF’s cold-stunnned patients, like Dulce, had severe cases of pneumonia.
Dulce, made a full recovery and after an almost three months stay at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center’s Rehabilitation Facility, Dulce crawled its way back to the ocean on the shorelines of Canaveral National Seashore in New Smyrna Beach, Florida on February 20, 2015.
