Not the news we were looking for. I was hoping for a happy ending for this fighter.  “Good Hope” the female hawksbill sea turtle has died while convalescing at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon.

The Herald article reported that the Hospital officials were surprised she had died and said she was responding to treatment, with improving blood tests. She had been continuing to produce eggs.

Many had been following the story through Palmetto Bay resident Andy Newman of Newman PR, who serves the Florida Keys & Key West Tourist Development Council.  You can view some photos on his personal Facebook page by CLICKING HERE.  These photos were posted September 21.
