Meet Natalia and Baby Hunt, our two smallest Kemp’s Ridleys! Both of these critically endangered sea turtles washed up on our beaches here in South Padre Island missing parts of their flippers. Natalia stranded last summer and is now almost 6 lbs! Baby Hunt stranded this July and weighs in at 0.2 lbs. Natalia struggles to dive, so until she is able to dive normally like other turtles her age, she will stay with us at our hospital. Baby Hunt will be released next spring/summer, when the floating sargassum seaweed habitat hatchlings require is once again present in our offshore waters.
