This is Stinky when he came in with severe head injuries, fractures to the head and face, swelling and infected  necrotic tissue (which is how he earned his name). 

And this is Stinky and a friend being released back into the wild  3 and a half months later.

Click the button for Stinky's story and pictures of his rehabiliation.



in 2020 Wildthunder made a post asking for friends to recycle their old bras to help us mend the turtles that come into rehab. This quickly went viral! and there is now articles all over the world mentioning the work we do . We no longer need any bra parts, but do ask if you would like to donate ,send us what you would have spent on postage, every little bit helps.
