12/22/2020 Turtle "207" stranded as part of the Cold Stun event in New England. 207 was brought to National Marine Life Center where it was then transfered to Mote Marine's Sea Turtle Hospital by a group called Turtles Fly Too, a non-profit organization of volunteer private pilots. Here the turtle was deemed "Catherine". Catherine was given fluids and placed in a rehabilitation pool.
12/27/2020 Catherine has been floating so radiographs were taken today to examine the lungs as these cold stun events are very harmful to their lungs.
01/07/2021 Catherine has slowly been improving. Catherine is not eating yet but is being force fed oral supplements and an anti-fungal. Catherine is also still receiving an injectible antibiotic and fluids once a week.
01/14/2021 Catherine started eating today for the first time!
01/17/2021 Catherine continues to eat well and has been taken off antibiotics and the anti-fungal.
02/01/2021 Catherine was medically cleared for release but will spend a few days in a dolphin rehabilitation tank to slowly get used to colder water to match the current ocean temperature.
02/08/2021 Blue Spruce, Francis, Catherine, Ruby Sue, and Margo were transported and released by Mote staff on the east coast of Florida off of New Smyrna Beach.
