Kuda Huraa – Turtle Conservation Programmes

A packed report this month from our turtle teams !
We welcome some new Hawksbill hatchlings into our Head Start Programme, and wave goodbye to Gaston after 10 months at our Centre.
And meet Rex – sadly admitted with both his front flippers missing, but otherwise in good health.

Enjoy our video, as we send 2 of our Head Start turtles out into the wild, complete with their very own satellite tracking tags.
Plus we release 100s of hatchlings safely out at sea, and you can meet our latest rescue turtle ‘Naseeb’ in his custom-made wetsuit !
