Rescued Green Sea Turtle appears to be recovering at Oregon Coast Aquarium

This stranded Green Sea Turtle was discovered lying on the sand at Moolack Beach, north of Newport, OR over the weekend. It was rescued by Oregon’s Stranded Marine Mammal program and was immediately brought to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport for rehydration and rehabilitation. It’s believed that this turtle, which is common in tropical waters, may have been in a small area of warm water that became surrounded by colder water pushing it toward the Oregon Coast. Once the tropical water “bubble” dissipated, the turtle went into a kind of hypothermic shock which produced a hibernative state. It was washed up on the beach a few miles north of Newport. Although appearing comatose to its rescuers, it appears to be making a remarkable recovery thanks to the expert care it is getting at the Oregon Coast Aquarium staff.

Once it reaches a certain level of recovery, it could be eligible for re-release into the ocean – the TROPICAL OCEAN from where it came.
