3/20/14 Captain was transferred from the Georgia Sea Turtle Center so her diving capability could be tested. This animal was previously released and re-stranded. Captain is doing very well in deep water and can rest on the bottom.
3/25/15 Captain is doing very well, although buoyancy issues have not subsided. Turtle is kept in lower water to maintain stability. Likely will be deemed un-releasable.
8/03/2015 Weights were added to Captain's carapace. Tank water level was raised, and turtle is now able to rest on the bottom.
8/21/2015 Most of the weights were removed from turtle's carapace.
8/25/2015 Turtle is often observed resting flat on the bottom of tank.
8/28/2015 All weights were removed from carapace and water level was lowered slightly.
12/07/2015 New weights were attached to Captain's carapace to help with buoyancy issues.
12/28/2015 Both weights have fallen off Captain's carapace. Turtle is seen sometimes flat and sometimes buoyant.
1/09/2016 Captain underwent an endoscopy procedure to determine sex; Captain is female!
1/15/2016 More weights were added to her carapace, and water level has been raised. She is observed swimming and resting level.
4/7/2016 Captain was moved to one of Mote's sea turtle exhibit tanks until a permanent facility has space for her. She shares a tank with Bellatrix (there is a permanent divider separating the two). She is eating well and seems to enjoy all the attention and change of scenery.
