02/27/2020  Anna was rescued and brought to Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW). Anna presented with large fibropapilloma tumors and is emaciated.

02/28/2020  Anna was transferred to Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital for continued care. Here Anna was measured, weighed, given fluids, and photographed before being placed in a shallow rehabilitation pool.

02/29/2020  Anna had blood drawn, given fluids, and started on an injectible antibiotic. We will be offering seafood, seagrass, and lettuce every 2 hours until Anna is eating consistently.

03/21/2020  Anna has begun foraging seafood and seagrass on her own within the last few days! Anna will need to continue to eat to become stronger before her fibropapilloma removal surgery.
