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!
