Three sea turtles were recently rescued by Clearwater Marine Aquarium after being badly injured by fishing gear. Two endangered green sea turtles, Urkel-O’s and Eucalyptus, were released back to sea just a week later after the aquarium gave them a clean bill of health!
Urkel-O’s flipper was tightly wrapped in monofilament fishing line causing it to be amputated and Eucalyptus was hooked by a fisherman and treated for trauma.
All three turtles that were rescued and rehabilitated by Clearwater Marine Aquarium and were released at Honeymoon Island State Park.
