Turtle Rescued

posted: June 10, 2020, 1:10 PM

The HBTP Stranding Team was called out last Thursday June 4 for a turtle that seemed to be floundering in the water on the east end of the island. This turtle ---that they've named SPOCK ---was taken to the Karen Beasley Turtle Hospital near Topsail Island. Reports are that SPOCK has a long road ahead of him. He tends to be a picky eater, likes filleted mackerel..but he did eat over the weekend and they are working to get him to eat.

If you see a sick or injured turtle on Holden Beach, please call our stranding team's emergency phone number. 910 754 0766.

See more photos of Spock's rescue in the photo section of this website.

Thank you to Allyssa Bullard for sharing some of the photos.
