Captain Jack is a sub-adult Loggerhead that was found in the St. Lucie FPL Power Plant intake canal. The turtle arrived with a heavy barnacle load on its carapace. Bloodwork showed the turtle was anemic, mildly hypoglycemic and hypocalcemic. Radiographs revealed a moderate amount of shell material throughout the GI tract. The turtle spent the first couple of days in fresh water to eliminate any of the salt water parasites that were found upon arrival. Captain Jack received fluids, antibiotics, and iron injections as prescribed during its stay at LMC. Captain Jack was successfully released off Juno Beach on January 22, 2014.

We would like to thank Dr. Jack Lighton for providing the funds to cover the cost of the transmitter.
