According to the World Wildlife Fund, Inc, nearly all species of sea turtles are classified as endangered, with 3 of the 7 existing species deemed critically endangered.1 In this dvm360® interview, Liz Barton, MA, VetMB, MRCVS, MCIPR, head of communications of VetCT, highlights the company's contributions to sea turtle conservation, including it's free teleradiology reports and specialist advice offerings to those working with this sick and injured population.

What's more, she shares common conditions sea turtles suffer from and spotlights how VetCT is making a difference in their lives.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Liz Barton, MA, VetMB, MRCVS, MCIPR: Powerboat injuries are really common, so kind of propeller injuries to [sea turtles'] carapace, [also] entrapment in plastics, causing sort of limb strangulation and limb loss. Ingestion of plastics is obviously a big one, you know, because they think plastic bags are a jellyfish and then they eat them.
