Onda (Spanish for wave) is an adult green sea turtle released with a satellite transmitter from Guanahacabibes Natural Park, Cuba on July 3, 2017. During the satellite attachment process, it was discovered that Onda had a large fishing hook in her front right flipper. With the assistance of staff from The Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Florida Keys, STC staff were able to safely remove the hook.
