With 655 admissions this year, including 370 hatchlings, KTTC reached capacity in numbers. Through increased collaboration and training of other rehabilitation centres, however, we were able to place many of the low-maintenance overwintering turtles with other centres, making room for the more intensive care individuals to recover at KTTC. In the coming year we expect numbers will continue to rise. Our goal is to continue to build overall capacity, by building and maintaining strong partnerships with other rehabilitation facilities and trying to find a larger space for our own centre.
