Young Rescued Endangered Turtle Comes Back To The Sea After Recovering From Hypothermia

Ruth the juvenile loggerhead turtle can come back to the ocean this September, after 7 months being treated for hypothermia.

In February, rescuers from SeaWorld Rescue found an endangered sea turtle in a life-threatening condition. The reptile was emaciated, lethargic, and cold-stunned after swimming over the area of declined water temperature. More, the turtle was suffering from severe pneumonia, a lung infection that can cause d.e.a.t.h in both human and mammal animals.

With the commitment to rescue and care for marine animals, SeaWorld Rescue tried everything in their power to save Ruth. They joined with Turtles Fly Too, an organization working helps stranded turtles with rehab facilities, to provide Ruth with the best medical care. Her treatment took several months, and she was happy to receive dedicated care from doctors and rescuers.

In early September, in La Jolla, California, the turtle who’d mostly lost her life was back to the ocean again, after months of hospitalization and rehabilitation. Ruth is the 2,889th reptile helped by SeaWorld Rescue. We are happy to know that in the future, there’ll be more sea animals getting rescued by this non-profit organization.

Apart from Ruth, SeaWorld Rescue has recently been successful with the recovery of four injured sea turtles, one of which got severe flipper wounds from a fishing line. All of them have been released into the water around the Australian ocean.

Thank SeaWorld Rescue and Turtles Fly Too for their meaningful job.  If you love Ruth and want to see how her second life is going, please visit seaturtle.org.
