juvenile female Olive Ridley turtle (RB.LO.135), admitted 30 July 2018, Soneva Jani, Noonu Atoll, Maldives
Weight / Length: xx kg / xx cm (upon admission);
Taissya was found entangled in a ghost net, close to Soneva Jani resort (Noonu Atoll). She had likely been trapped in the net for some time as she was admitted with minor injuries on the carapace and lacerations on her flippers.
Taissya is already eating very well and resting at the bottom of the pool, so will stay at our rehabilitation centre for only a few days, so we can look after her injuries and feed her to gain energy and strength before release.
Update 3 October 2018
Release day !
