Meet Kirby! Kirby is a large, male loggerhead sea turtle who was rescued by Clearwater Marine Aquarium after we received multiple reports that he was lethargic and failing to submerge. The sea turtle was found heavily encrusted with epibiota (barnacles and algae). After his initial exam, he received fluids and needed a lot of rest to regain his strength. Kirby is doing very well, eating, and swimming in the sea turtle ICU. Stay tuned for updates on his rehab progress!
