juvenile Olive Ridley turtle (RB.LO.169), admitted 29 March 2019, Club Med Kanifinolhu, N.Malé Atoll, Maldives
Weight / Length: 7.1kg / 37.1cm (on admission);
One of four turtles (Titan, Styx, Sirius, Eros) rescued from entanglement in a ghost net (discarded fishing gear) by Club Med Kani resort (North Malé Atoll), and brought to our turtle rescue centre (thanks, guys!)
Eros is suffering from lacerations and abrasions on her flippers and carapace (shell). She is otherwise healthy and active, and can dive below the water surface, resting at the bottom of the pool to eat pieces of lobster and fish.
We are hoping for a quick recovery and subsequent release in the coming days.
