Pluff was found stranded in the marsh on Hilton Head Island in June of this year. Upon admittance to the Sea Turtle Hospital, Pluff Blood tests were performed and the turtle was found to have extremely low blood protein (hypoprotenemia) and a low level of red blood cells (anemia). Supportive care including antibiotics, vitamin injections and fluid therapy were immediately started. After just four months of care, Pluff has fully recovered and is ready to be returned to the Atlantic Ocean once again.
Huge thanks to all who helped with Pluff's rescue and rehabilitation. Hope you can join us!
