Eau-lympia is a sub-adult loggerhead that was found floating in a marina in Stuart, Florida on May 24, 2021. Eau-lympia was underweight and in poor health due to chronic debilitation. After three months of treatment and care by The Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Eau-lympia made a full recovery and was released back into its ocean home.
Eau-lympia is named for Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. With a name like Eau (pronounced “O” – French for water) and the Atlantic on their door step, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is committed to ocean conservation and has dedicated their support to further LMC’s mission. Thank you Eau Palm Beach for your generous support and providing us the opportunity to track Eau-lympia’s movements post-release by providing funding for the Wildlife Computer’s satellite transmitter that was affixed to Eau-lympia’s carapace (shell) prior to release.
