Web-Exclusive: Sea Turtle With One Flipper Gets New Rudder Prosthetic


Sea Turtle Inc. Director Jeff George introduces Allison, a 70-pound sea turtle who lost three of her flippers in a predator attack. Thanks to the advocacy of a 21-year-old intern, Allison has received a prosthetic rudder made out of carbon fiber to create drag in the water and allow her to swim freely.
