The sixth and last sea turtle nest hatched on May 19th. This marked the end of the fairy saga we have lived in Landaa Giraavaru, protecting the six nests laid by a green turtle. All our efforts of monitoring and conservation have led a total of 360 healthy hatchlings sea turtles to find a safe way to the ocean and 16 weaker babies to join the rearing centre at Kuda Huraa to give them best chance of survival.

76 green turtle hatchlings were released today, measuring around 4.6 cm and weighting 22 g. Made in Landaa! Nest . .πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’πŸ’

Come and meet the rescue turtles down at our Marine Discovery Centres. πŸ’š The first few months of each year are always very busy, with more turtles being found trapped in drifting ghost fishing nets due to the seasonal ocean currents.

On April 20th we released Stevie, a female Olive Ridley Turtle with a Satellite track device. Stevie spend 2 months with us, after being found entangled in a ghost net in Laamu Atoll. After overcoming her problems, she was able to dive and rest at the bottom of the pool. We will be able to track her movements and see where she is heading next. Keep track of Stevie on our webpage!

Γ€ good awareness can make the difference! Marinesavers is proud of the actions taken by some staff members at the resort to save sea turtles. All the turtles in this video were found entangled in abandoned fishing nets and were destined to a certain death. Although we don't have the power to reduce the ghost nets threat at the source, we can minimize the impact here by forming an army of marine rescuers. Stop and help if you find an entangled turtle. If you cannot release contact one of the rehabilitation centers below: Baa Atoll - Landaa Giraavaru, Marinesavers - +960 66 00 888. Baa Atoll - Coco Palm, Olive Ridley project - +960 955 2205. North Male Atoll - Kuda Huraa, Marinesavers - +960 66 44 888. Lhaviyani Atoll - Naifaru, Atoll Marine centre - +960 743 4782.

See who is patroling with us this morning...a juvenile Blacktip Reef Shark! These baby sharks find ideal conditions in the shallow waters around Landaa Giraavaru where they are save from predators and encounter an abundance of food...we often see them coming up close to the beach in their search of food

Another green turtle visited us to leave her eggs... turtle nest already in this year!!!!

During our dolphin cruise yesterday we were able to see some of the impressive acrobatics that give these Spinner dolphins their name

Today we had the visit of Pera Orp the veterinary at Olive Ridley Project to check on our turtles and more closely on Beybe bones infection. She gave us advices and treatments to cure him.

Yesterday was not a funny day! We brought Beybe to the clinic for an X-rays check-up to find out what is going wrong. Despite all our efforts, Beybe has stopped eating for a month and he became very weak. We are waiting the veterinary diagnostic and we hope this clinic exam will help to save him and better understand his health problem.

Flash and Allegra hatched on the 25th of January of 2017 in Four Seasons Kuda Huraa. After spending a year with us growing and getting stronger, Flash and Allegra were released on the 28th of February 2018 at Makoonodhu, North Male. Four days later during a snorkel Allegra was spotted again by our marine biologist! We wish the best to these little hawksbills and we hope we keep seeing them on future snorkels!

They have hatched!! Finally after several days of courting and dancing rituals our seahorse dad gave birth this morning to 63 juveniles. In the wild, the young seahorses have to care for themselves, there is a very high mortality rate, less than 1% will survive. That is why the Seahorse breeding program is back at the Fishlab, started in 2013 and stopped for over 3 years. We will work towards to ensure the protection of these babies during the early stages of their life. Then we will return them to the wild as they mature.
