Coco
A 215 pound adult male loggerhead sea turtle was rescued 9 miles offshore of Marathon in the Florida Bay and taken to the Turtle Hospital on February 27th, 2018.

Rebecca
Rebecca is a juvenile green sea turtle that has been treated three times since 2016 in Gumbo Limbo’s Rehabilitation Facility for interactions with hooks and fishing line. On her most recent stranding, Rebecca’s front left flipper and neck were entangled severely in monofilament and hooks.  The wound was treated with medicinal leeches and cold laser therapy to try to prevent the flipper from being amputated. Rebecca has made a full recovery after 3 months of rehabilitation and will be released in sea grass habitat in Biscayne National Park.  View migration map.

If you don’t see your turtle listed above, please check the full list of sea turtles tracked through the STC website.

Note About Location Points: STC does not receive location points every day. Some location points are provide by researchers and are posted on the maps as soon as we receive them. There may be times when there are no new points for several weeks. This is most likely the result of the sea turtle not staying at the surface long enough for the transmitter to be picked up by enough satellites. It takes several satellites to pick up the location of a transmitter and the transmitter antenna needs to be out of the water long enough for the satellites to pick up the signal. STC will continue to post new positions as soon as we receive them.
