  • Eddie's Story

    Eddie is a small green turtle who was stranded near Edisto in August of 2012.  The rescuers found him flailing and swimming vigorously trying to get away, but he wasn’t able to dive below the surface.  After some close examination, the sea turtle hospital concluded that Eddie’s buoyancy issue was caused by a boat strike wound to his shell.  The nerves that control the gastrointestinal tract were damaged, causing his rear end to constantly float, making it difficult for Eddie to dive for food.  In addition, Eddie’s appearance was abnormally pale.  Low thyroid hormone levels caused Eddie to lose his color, leaving him with a light gray skin and shell.  After a year and a half of rehabilitation, there was still no solution to Eddie’s buoyancy problem, and he was deemed non-releasable.  Eddie’s quality of life is otherwise excellent, and he has found a permanent home at an aquarium in Texas.
