Viewers from around the world can now tune into our live web cams to check on the progress of sea turtle patient Te Fiti in our hospital tank (top image). Big thanks to Florida Power & Light Company and the FPL Group Foundation for the donation which made the Turtle Cams a reality.
Te Fiti is a subadult loggerhead sea turtle patient that was found at FPL’s St. Lucie site. The turtle has a deep wound on its right front flipper from an unknown cause. The wound will be treated topically with honey and therapeutic laser. Te Fiti will receive antibiotics and be closely monitored by hospital staff as its wound is treated.
