Join Us for Sea Turtle Release Saturday at the Islander Resort, a Guy Harvey Outpost
The public is invited to join the Turtle Hospital for Miley’s release back to the wild on Saturday, May 2nd at 10:30 a.m. at The Islander Resort, a Guy Harvey Outpost M.M. 82.1 on the Oceanside.
The Turtle Hospital ambulance will arrive at the Islander in Islamorada at 10:30 a.m. and Miley will be released off of the beach promptly at 11:00 a.m. Miley was rescued off of Dove Key in early March where she was found floating and what rescuer’s described as “twerking”. The rescuer’s named her Miley, after Miley Cyrus.
Miley is a sub-adult Loggerhead sea turtle. She arrived at the hospital on March 8th following a boat strike. She weighs 117 pounds. Loggerheads are the largest hard shell sea turtles and adults typically weigh between 180 and 440 pound. They can grow to over 1000 pounds. Loggerheads are considered a “Threatened” species and are protected under the Endangered Species Act. Following a treatment course at the Turtle Hospital that included broad spectrum antibiotics, lactulose, beano, vitamins, and a healthy diet of squid and fish, Miley is ready to hit the main stage. Miley is swimming strong, healthy, and no longer “twerking”. Bring your friends and help us to give Miley a proper send-off on Saturday!
