06/16/2020  Leo was found floating along the seawall in front of Marine Max nextdoor to Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium here on City Island. Leo was brought to Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital for rehabilitation. Leo started eating right away which is always a good sign in rehabilitating wildlife!
