Sea Turtle Care at the South Carolina Aquarium

Sick and injured sea turtles that arrive at the South Carolina Aquarium are often in critical condition suffering from severe debilitation, plastic ingestion, or injury from boat strikes or fishing gear.  Staff veterinarians, Care Center staff and volunteers provide treatments and rehabilitative care.  In this lecture, learn what it takes to rehabilitate these ancient reptiles, get information on Hilton Head patients, and take a closer look at interesting trends in live strandings.  Kelly Thorvalson, the Conservation Programs Manger at the Sea Turtle Care Center will be the presenter.
