young male Olive Ridley turtle (RB.LO.xxx), admitted 13 February 2024, Kaafu Atoll, Maldives

Weight / Length: xx.xkg / xx.xcm (on admittance)

Jimmy is a young male who was found floating on the ocean surface, near the neighboring island of Kanuhuraa. He had a spontaneously amputated front left flipper and a few wounds on the carapace.

Ever since his admittance, Jimmy has been very active in the tank, trying to dive to catch his food. With daily topical treatments, the wounds have been healing nicely.

March Updates

Jimmy’s wounds are healing very well. This month, a protocol with external target weight therapy was put into action. The weight has provided more balance and he is very active in the tank, but is unfortunately still unable to dive.
