TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The fight to save a sea turtle’s life is going well at Panacea’s Gulf Specimen Marine Lab.© Provided by Tallahassee-Thomasville WCTV Staff say Hope's still not out of the woods yet, but they’re optimistic she’ll have a chance to return to the wild.
The turtle, named Hope, was paralyzed by red tide neurotoxins and washed ashore on St. George Island.
Staff now tell us Hope regained some strength over the weekend. In a new video of her trying to swim, you can see she’s moving all of her flippers, but she is still not breathing as often as they’d like.
They are still letting her rest and rehydrate. Staff say she’s still not out of the woods yet, but they’re optimistic she’ll have a chance to return to the wild.
