Our Vacation in FloridaWe visited The Turtle Hospital in Marathon.
This nonprofit organization rehabilitates sea turtles and returns them to the wild where possible.
The turtles were lively, so I took several movies.
The Turtle Hospital
Injured by a boat propeller, this turtle floats to the surface and cannot dive for food.
Because of this problem it is a permanent resident.
This turtle is only about 6 inches long and will be returned to the ocean soon.
