This is Oxygen - a kemp's ridley sea turtle incidentally hooked at a fishing pier this summer. This turtle ingested the hook which was later removed by our veterinarian. Oxygen spent some time in rehab on antibiotic support post hook removal and received wound care for superficial abrasions to the carapace, head and flippers. Oxygen also exhibited periods of low to no appetite which were addressed with appetite stimulants and assistance in feeding. Oxygen is now eating well, including live crabs, and was released back to the ocean last week.

4. Help your organization diversify rather than discriminate. Please read and share.
In light of recent events at the housing resource center, what steps are being taken to ensure the safety of volunteers? I went to a few of your meetings before the center opened and my questions about safety were rebuffed. I also sent an email inquiring the same question, I was told that police would be making patrols through the area But there would be no permanent police presence. Has this changed?
Hello. Do you have any volunteer opportunities during the week or just weekends? I would love to do some volunteer work. How would I found opportunites that I could participant.
