We had a live stranding today of a live adult female Loggerhead. Someone at Windy Point saw her in the water and went to the end of their pier to get a better look and saw that she had been hit by a boat, He called the stranding number and members of the Turtle Patrol went to its aid. When they got there it was close to the pier.. They entered the water and brought the injures turtle into shore and placed it in a kids swimming pool. The injured turtle was then carried about 250 feet to a waiting SUV.
