Iron Muay Thai welcomes its newest member!

I put out a collection jar at the gym and within a week, we came up with the money needed to adopt Mahi, a juvenile green sea turtle found near Ponte Vedra, Florida.  Mahi is being rehabilitated at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island, after getting tangled up in a fishing line.  A huge ball of the stuff was found in his/her stomach and wrapped around the front right flipper, which had to be amputated.  Despite missing a flipper, Mahi is swimming very well in deep water.  We are getting updates on Mahi’s progress and are hopeful that s/he will be released back into the ocean one day.
