Summary: The Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital (STRH) has been providing veterinary care to sick and injured sea turtles since 1995. Since that time we have admitted over 600 sea turtles, of all 5 species found in the Gulf of Mexico, including animals stranded in our immediate response area as well as elsewhere throughout the state of Florida and beyond. This project would fund replacing the protective panels of the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital non-firbropapilloma ward.
