Bicklebaum was found by one of our Southern Shores ATV riders, Dennis Silveri.  He saw the turtle upside down on the beach during his morning route.  Once he turned it over the boat strike injury was easy to see. He and NEST President, Dennis Pohl, then used one of our new turtle stretchers to carry the turtle to safety and bring it to the STAR Center.  Congratulations on a great job Denis and Dennis!!
