Rescued olive ridley sea turtle, “Coral,” receiving care at the Aquarium

Rescued olive ridley sea turtle, “Coral,” receiving care at the Aquarium

The Seattle Aquarium is once again providing expert care to an olive ridley sea turtle—and unlike Tucker, a male turtle of the same species who was brought to us in late 2016, this turtle is female. Her caregivers have given her the name “Coral.”

California-bound with Tucker the sea turtle

Seattle Aquarium Laboratory Technician Amy Green recently traveled to San Diego with Tucker, a rescued olive ridley sea turtle that was rehabilitated at the Aquarium. Tucker was joined by Comber, a rescued Pacific green turtle that was rehabilitated at the Vancouver Aquarium. Both turtles will continue care at SeaWorld Rescue before release into the wild.
