Jersey Prepares for a New Home

Great news! The Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, CA has acquired the federal permit necessary to host Jersey as a permanent resident! We are so excited that this non-releasable loggerhead has an opportunity to enjoy life in a 50,000-gallon tank.

To prepare Jersey for success in his/her new home, the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program staff and volunteers have recently implemented a target training regimen. Food is used […]


Green (Chelonia mydas)
Stranding Location: C.C. Haig, Jr. Boat Landing, Pinckney Island, SC

Arrival Date: 10/05/2014

Age: Juvenile

Weight: 4.2 kg (~9 lb.)
Case History
We admitted a very interesting case on Sunday night: a small green sea turtle caught on hook-and-line. Sea turtle interactions with recreational fisheries are certainly not uncommon, and we’ve removed so many circle and J-hooks from sea turtles over the years that our veterinarian is very adept at the process.

Loggerhead (Caretta caretta)
Stranding Location: Myrtle Beach, SC

Arrival Date: 09/15/2014

Age: Sub-adult

Weight: 60.5 kg (133 pounds)

The crew used a backhoe (it was initially reported as a bulldozer, hence the name Dozer) to pick up the large sea turtle. The tractor, a gentle giant when run by an operator who knows it well, did a great job bringing the […]


Kemp’s ridley (Lepidochelys kempii)
Stranding Location: Seabrook Island, SC

Arrival Date: 08/31/2014

Age: Juvenile

Weight: 2.9 kg (~6 lb.)
Case History
A young Kemp’s ridley caught on recreational hook-and-line fishing gear, the fourth we’ve treated this year, arrived on Labor Day weekend just hours after we admitted both a green sea turtle (see Bailey’s page) and a Kemp’s ridley with boat strike injuries. Luckily, a quick health assessment showed that, other than a circle hook seated in the back of […]
