Xeno

Xeno was one of our longest and most challenging rehabilitations. He was cared for by our Corpus Christi volunteers who willingly made him a part of their Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. Overcoming infections that may have led to blindness.  After gaining 130 lbs, he was released back into the Gulf of Mexico.
