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 !

We’re giving a ‘head start’ to some turtle hatchlings this month, and are pleased to report record sightings for our turtle ID database. Plus we sponsor an exciting new rearing project on Kendhoo, and find turtle tracks on a nearby uninhabited island.
