Bodu Huraa Hatchlings Rescue Turtle

Green Turtle Hatchlings, CM.N0xx.124 to 125, hatched October 2017, Bodu Huraa, Maldives

 

124 – Deeko – 85g / 7.6cm (admission); 272g / 11.3cm (Dec);
125 – Naiko – 94g / 8.3cm (admission); 300g / 11.9cm (Dec);

 

These small Green Turtle hatchlings were found on the beach at Buda Huraa after a stormy night. Tired from struggling with the sea currents, they were brought to us on 22 October and admitted into our Head Start Programme, where we will grow them on to the target 30cm length before release.

After overcoming eye infections, these cute hatchlings are back in their pool, spending time swimming and following each other around, diving after food and having long naps on the surface.
