A group of nine images, of a juvenile Green Sea Turtle depicting a day in the life of "Coraline" while in recovery at Loggerhead MarineLife Center. Coraline was found stranded, emaciated. lethargic and covered in barnacles which had caused some shell damage, in an intake canal of the St Lucie Nuclear power plant.In April 2014 Loggerhead Marinelife Center started her recovery process with betadine scrubs, antibiotics, blood-work and nutrition. As of September 2015, Coraline is still in the program and being monitored closely, she weighs about 14 pounds, eats everything offered and her lesions have healed. These images were taken over a few days in her win tank at Loggerhead Marinelife Center.
