04/21/2020 Olaf was found floating in the boat basin of Marine Max right here by Mote Marine Laboratory. Captain Kenny brought Olaf right to the Sea Turtle Hospital for rehabilitation. Olaf presented with many areas on the turtle's carapace, plastron, flippers, and face that were deteriorating and had necrotic (dying/dead) tissue. Olaf was weighed, had blood work done, given fluids, started on injectable antibiotics, and placed in low water in a rehabilitation pool.
04/28/2020 Olaf had a first tube feeding today.
05/06/2020 Olaf foraged food for the first time today!
05/11/2020 Olaf has been doing great! Olaf's water level has been raised to full level.
Even in challenging times, our team is working to ensure a bright future for the oceans and all those who depend on them. You can help.
