Welcome Home, Tater Tot!
Published: Monday, April 30, 2018
We are pleased to announce that Tater Tot was released on Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at 12 p.m. at the River to Sea Preserve public beach.
Tater Tot is a juvenile green sea turtle that stranded on Vilano Beach on January 20, 2018. This little turtle was cold upon arrival and needed to be slowly warmed back up. He/she also had small fibropapillomatosis tumors. Fortunately, we were able to get this animal healthy quickly, and after a couple of minor tumor removal surgeries, he/she was ready to return home.
Thank you to everyone who attended Tater Tot's release!
