Current Sea Turtle Hospital Patients

2017 Live Sea Turtle Intakes at Clearwater Marine Aquarium: 24

These animals are currently receiving treatment at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Our sea turtle rehab center is one of only five facilities that treat sea turtles with the fibropapilloma virus in our ICU. This virus causes the growth of tumors that can be removed surgically with variable success for regrowth.
