Snoopy Rescue Turtle

juvenile Olive Ridley turtle (RB.LO.128), admitted 13 February 2018, Six Senses, Laamu Atoll, Maldives


Weight: 724g (upon admission);
Length: 16.2cm (upon admission);

This small juvenile Olive Ridley turtle was found by Six Senses Laamu (Laamu Atoll) entangled in a net (with Eddy) on 13 February, and was sent to us for care.
She had to undergo an amputation of the left front flipper as it was severely damaged from the entanglement. She is already diving after food and getting stronger by the day, so we hope she will be healthy for release very soon.
