It came to our attention that many of you took interest in one particular Massachusetts rescued sea turtle, number 626. This sea turtle happens to have the same number as a beloved blue friend, Stitch, also known as Experiment #626. This sea turtle is currently eating and swimming well. Last week's x-rays showed improvement in the pneumonia it’s being treated for. We’re not quite out of the woods yet, but our animal care and rescue teams are working hard and doing all they can. We usually don’t name our rescue patients under our care, but we might make an exception this time. What do you guys think?
