Flipsy Rescue Turtle

Hawksbill Turtle Hatchling, EI.N014.046, admitted 19 June 2018, Gili Lankan Fushi, Maldives

 

Weight/Length – 12g/3.8cm (admission); 82g/7.9cm (Oct-18); 

Flipsy (EI.046) from Gili Lankan Fushi was found stuck in the nest after all her siblings had dug their way out. She presented a deformation of the flipper and a skin infection, but is otherwise active and already diving after food. We will keep her as part of our Head Start Programme until she is better able to survive by herself in the wild.
