The SeaWorld Orlando rescue team has had a busy June and their efforts are paying off! On June 18, three juvenile green sea turtles were returned to their natural environment by the SeaWorld Orlando rescue team after months of treatment at SeaWorld Orlando. The three turtles were rescued in February and were found lethargic and covered in barnacles. One, found at Vark Park in Flagler City was returned to the nearby Tom Renick Park in Ormond Beach, while the other two were returned to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Flagler City after transferring to SeaWorld Orlando from Whitey lab.
Additionally on June 25, the SeaWorld Orlando rescue team returned a Florida Sandhill crane with a fishhook in its foot. The bird was monitored and treated with antibiotics prior to being returned. Florida Sandhill cranes are protected by both state and federal law due to decreased population as a result of habitat destruction.
If you see an injured marine animal, you can help by calling the FWC hotline at 888-404-3922 or by dialing *FWC on a cellular device.
All sea turtle return footage produced by SeaWorld under FWS Permit Number TE134265-2 and FWC Permit Number MTP-19-035.
