Ellie’s Life at Landaa

Hi! I’m Ellie, the marine biology intern at Landaa Giraavaru. Having recently graduated in Zoology, I am taking a year out to gain work experience … and what an incredible experience it has been so far!
It’s challenging to learn all the relevant fish & coral biology so quickly … but the Marine Savers team is amazing, and it’s a tropical paradise here!

Plus there’s the story of Tara, the juvenile Olive Ridley turtle found covered in oil, who receives a special spa treatment … a mayonnaise massage! 😃

Watch our video of Juno – a recap of the story, ending with her release back into the ocean.
