LuckRescue Turtle

juvenile turtle (xx.xx.XXX), admitted 1 January 2024, Malé Atoll, Maldives

Weight / Length: 0.036kg / 5.8cm (on admittance)

Luck is a hatchling around a month old that was found floating with a big cut above its eye, here in the lagoon at Kuda Huraa.

He has been passing fragments of plastic in his faeces, but is showing signs of improvement.

By the end of the month, Luck had already grown to 59g and measured 7.0cm. During this period, he received fluids and plenty of food. As a result of this, his diving skills improved, passed plastic debris, and the cut wound has completely healed. Hopefully, Luck will soon be able to be released.
