Track Eau-Tis

Eau-tis, named for Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, is a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle that was found chronic debilitated in the waterway behind a private home in Jupiter. The turtle was admitted to the Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center on November 7, 2017.

After 10 months of treatment for anemia, hypoglycemia, and minor surgeries to treat an abscess on the front of the carapace, Eau-tis was cleared for released. With a generous donation from Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, LMC was able to purchase a Wildlife Computers satellite transmitter for Eau-tis. This will allow us to track the turtle’s movements to ensure that the turtle is behaving normally post-rehabilitation and release. Eau-tis was released from the beach in front of Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa on August 14, 2018. Follow this turtle’s journey by clicking on Eau-tis’ photo.

Update 9/14/2018

Eau-tis began swimming south on September 12th and the turtle is now just off the coast of Melbourne, Florida. Eau-tis is now only approximately 2.5 miles from TFD’s last location!

Update 9/7/2018

Eau-tis is still near the Cape Canaveral Inlet. The turtle is making consistent dives to the bottom of the seafloor.

Update 9/3/2018

Eau-tis is right near the Cape Canaveral Inlet. This area is a known high traffic area for boats. Unfortunately, boat strikes are one of the top two most common conditions that turtles are treated for at the Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center (the other condition being chronic debilitation). Sadly, boat strike turtles that LMC responds to have a 91% mortality rate. In response, LMC has created a Responsible Boater Initiative to help educate the boating community about safe and responsible boating practices.

Update 8/31/2018

Eau-tis continues to head north and is now in the Cape Canaveral area. Eau-tis is still close to the shoreline, in just 31 feet of water.

Update 8/24/2018

Eau-tis has swam father north and is now just off the coast of Fort Pierce, Florida. The turtle is also a bit father offshore in deeper waters.

Update 8/20/2018

Eau-tis has swam north and is now just offshore of Stuart Beach, Florida.

Update 8/17/2018

Since being released, Eau-tis swam north and is now right around the Palm Beach Inlet. Although some of the points appear to be on land, this is just a result of the normal error in the satellite readings. Based on the high accuracy points, it appears that Eau-tis is staying very close to the shoreline which is why some of the less accurate points appear to place the turtle on land.

Update 8/14/2018

Eau-tis was successfully released from the beach in front of Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.
