Hi all, Sorry for not updating this map for King's Canyon more often. We moved out program into a new state of the art sea turtle center/hospital just in time for record sea turtle strandings. For more information on this event you can check our blog at: http://rescue.neaq.org/ I removed the ocean currents from this map to make it a little easier to view. I hope to update this map more often as things begin to settle down here with sea turtle strandings. Thanks for supporting sea turtles! - Connie, New England Aquarium Rescue Department manager.

Background

During the fall of 2009, Kings Canyon, stranded on the shores of Cape Cod along with over 70 other live sea turtles. Kings Canyon was rescued off the beach by a biologist from Mass Audubon at Wellfleet Bay, our partners in sea turtle rescue and conservation. Upon admittance to the New England Aquarium animal hospital, Kings Canyon was hypothermic and diagnosed with pneumonia. Kings Canyon’s pneumonia was at first difficult to treat, requiring multiple therapies with different antibiotics and antifungals before the infection came under control and the animal started to heal. After several months of therapy, Kings Canyon has grown and is now a healthy, robust turtle that is ready for release. During Kings Canyon’s stay at the New England Aquarium marine animal hospital, the turtle has doubled in weight, going from 2.85 kilograms to 6 kilograms.
