Maafushi Hatchlings Rescue Turtle

Hawksbill Turtle Hatchlings, EI.N012.044 to 045, admitted 17 December 2017, Maafushi, Maldives

044 – Boss – 27g/5.6cm (admission);
045 – Hugo – 21g/4.7cm (admission);

These two young hawksbill turtle hatchlings were found in Maafushi, too weak to make it by themselves, so they were admitted to our Centre on 17 December. They are active, trying to dive for food, and getting stronger by the day.
