Meet Stevie

Stevie was rescued during a post hatch excavation on July 21, 2020. Stevie got stuck in a shell while trying to make its way out of the nest. The extra bulk of the shell around Stevie’s shell prevented him from moving up any further in the nest. While trying to figure out how to safely remove the shell, Stevie wiggled out of it on his own. Stevie was assessed and given a swim test to make sure he was strong enough to swim out to sea. He was deemed ready for release and was returned to the ocean the same day.
