Meet Jo the Sea Turtle

As part of our support and sponsorship of the South Carolina Aquarium, we’re honored to do our part in
protecting sea turtles here in our local waters. Jo, (can you guess who chose the name?) was caught on
a hook and line and was stranded on Hilton Head Island until arriving at the South Carolina Aquarium for care on
September 5th. Jo is a juvenile Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle, weighing only 6.3 pounds upon arrival, and was described to be
“spicy” and in good spirits by the Aquarium team. After a special procedure to remove the hook, Jo is
now in the Nutritional Care Center at the Aquarium for the coming weeks until Jo is well enough to be
released back into South Carolina waters.

We hope you’ll join us in monitoring Jo’s condition and visiting Jo if you can at the Aquarium. To
