Mote Marine Laboratory’s Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital is seeking supplies to help turtles affected by the recent cold spell.
Mote is seeking donations of closed-cell foam padding, “kiddie” pools, cattle waterers, spray bottles, towels, blankets, tarps, spring clamps, ventilated containers and monetary donations for food, medications and satellite tags.
Mote began receiving turtles with cold-stunning, which renders turtles lethargic and can shut down their organs and bodily functions, Jan. 7. Veterinarians often treat cold-stunned turtles by giving them fluids and raising the temperature of their water in small increments over time.
For information about donations, contact Stacy Alexander at 388-4441, Ext. 509 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
