Background

Amanda is an adult loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) that was rescued by a group of divers about a mile offshore from the Lake Worth Inlet on December 28, 2014. Amanda suffered from mechanical trauma to both front flippers. The wounds were debrided each week, cleaned with betadine, and treated with cold laser therapy routinely. By April, Amanda's wounds had healed well and cold laser therapy was no longer necessary. The turtle did develop anemia so iron injections were started. Amanda responded well to the iron injections and was medically cleared for release by LMC's vet. Amanda was successfully released off of Juno Beach on June 11, 2015.
