Meet Captain the Green Sea Turtle (Virtual)

April 15, 2020, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Known for her charisma and sass, Captain is the resident sea turtle at the Marine Environmental Education Center. Captain was struck by a boat in 2010, and she stranded later that year due to complications from that injury. She spent three years in rehab at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, where she was cleared for release! Unfortunately, less than a month after being released in October 2013, she re-stranded with floating issues. After a couple more stints in rehab at GSTC and then Mote Marine Lab, it was determined that Captain would never be fit to swim in the open ocean again, as she was unable to dive without the assistance of weight-therapy.
