Clearwater Marine Aquarium is currently rehabilitating several baby loggerhead sea turtles. A number of these hatchlings, nicknamed “The Pool Boys,” were recently rescued after being discovered inside a swimming pool filter by a local resident near Indian Shores, Florida. We hope to release them all back into the wild soon. The baby sea turtles are recovering well, however given their fragile state they are still in critical condition. Read more about their rescue story.
