Hawksbill turtle hatchlings from a nest on Voavah (Four Seasons Private Island). The rest of their siblings were released into the wild. The 3 hatchlings presented with skin infections and carapace deformations; they are now eating, diving and resting at the bottom of their pool.
Updates July 2018
Our baby Hawksbill turtles have overcome a skin infection and are now healthy and very active. They have grown and gained weight, and now their carapace deformations are less obvious.
