About Cassi

Cassi is a juvenile green sea turtle that was found stranded on Ormond Beach, Florida in March, 2021 as part of a cold stun event on Florida’s east coast. Cassi was taken to Volusia Marine Science Center for triage and was then later transferred to The Florida Aquarium for rehabilitation. Cassi measured 38.4 cm CCL (shell length). After months of care, Cassi was cleared for release and was released with a satellite tag on August 25, 2021. Cassi’s satellite transmitter was sponsored by Verizon.
