Pluto is a juvenile green sea turtle that was found cold-stunned (hypothermic) on Ocracoke Island in mid-January 2014. This turtle was also thin and covered in barnacles and algae. It was transferred to the sea turtle rehabilitation center at NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island, where it was nursed back to health over several months. North Carolina waters, especially estuarine areas such as Core, Pamlico and Croatan Sounds, are frequented in spring, summer and fall months by juvenile green sea turtles like Pluto

SEATURTLE.ORG collaborates with Argos to help scientists and conservationists manage and analyse their valuable animal tracking data.
