We received Tom (aka Clem Van Dango) on 5th June 2018. Tom lost both of his front flippers from being entangled in debris. Unfortunately, because of this he is unable to be released. Fear not, we are also looking into transferring him to bigger tanks elsewhere! Tom loves attention and is always looking for food or a booty scratch from our staff and volunteers.
He is always going on ocean swims and loves to float along in the current and watch everything happening below him. We will continually try to help him dive again which if he can will improve his quality of life.
SPECIES: olive ridley
PERSONALITY: chill, a sweetheart, wouldn't hurt a fly
