Background

Auntie Roe was found at the St. Lucie Power Plant on October 15, 2015. The turtle was chronic debilitated (underweight and lethargic) so it was transferred to LMC’s sea turtle hospital. Auntie Roe also had an old, healed shark bite wound on the right side of the carapace and part of the right rear flipper was missing.

During Auntie Roe’s stay at LMC’s hospital, the turtle received antibiotics. Over time the turtle’s condition improved; Auntie Roe began eating well and put on weight. To learn more about Auntie Roe and our other turtles, visit LMC's website at www.marinelife.org.
