Iceman has been released! Good luck little turtle!

Welcome to Assateague, Iceman!

Iceman and I are on our way to the release site!

Rehab patient Iceman is ready for release! Join National Aquarium Animal Rescue staff for the release tomorrow at Assateague State Park!

Wednesdays are apparently rough for rehab patient Blade. We provide enrichment items for rehab patients, including ‘hides’ or ‘caves’ for sea turtles. Some turtles use these items more than others when resting. Blade likes to tuck his head under the PVC hide to sleep. #turtlesofinstagram #nationalaquarium #animals

Rehab patient Blade had shoulder surgery today to assess the condition of his joints. Surgeons took lots of bone and tissue biopsies, and Blade recovered well. He is currently swimming in his pool again, while we wait a few days for test results. #nationalaquarium #animalrescue #animals #conservation #seaturtle

Turtles are snug in their carriers and on the road to their release site.
