Finnegan, one of our Atlantic green rehab patients, enjoying a leisurely swim. Finnegan stranded in June 2017 with fishing line deeply embedded around his left front flipper. He will stay in rehabilitative care while his flipper slowly heals. The white PVC structure you see in this video is a type of ‘enrichment’ – a way to enhance the quality of captive care by providing environmental stimuli. The turtles love rubbing their shells against the enrichment and are often found napping under it!
