Our new loggerhead charge, named Raven by staff, weighs just 91 grams and is four inches long, from head to tail. She is currently settling into her new temporary home at the Aquarium.
The National Aquarium has participated in the Head Start Program since 2004. As part of this program, the Aquarium is one of many institutions from across the country that rehabilitates hatchlings with the ultimate goal of releasing them back into the wild.
As with the other turtles previously held in our care, this newest addition will initially stay behind-the-scenes to acclimate her to her new environment.
Stay tuned for more updates!
