Turtles are special and amazing: Even though all the turtles are amazing and special, the more critical cases tend to leave an impact on me. Those are the ones that you stay up at night worrying about, spending the extra hours doing special treatments on, and much, much more. One such case is #25, a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle who fought his way back to life.
If you thought The Globe’s historic pictures of the Aquarium were interesting, you might like this picture of a “mermaid” taken during festivities for the cornerstone laying ceremony in October, 1967. A big crane lowered the sequin-clad mermaid on to Central Wharf while the Boston Fire Department Band provided background music.
There’s a lot more history where that came from here.
