Kulhudhuffushi Hatchlings Rescue Turtle

Hawksbill Turtle Hatchlings, nest #N017, admitted 16 September 2019, Kulhudhuffushi, Haa Dhaal Atoll, Maldives

 

EI.057 – Ali  – 13g/4.0cm;
EI.058 – Mizu – 14g/4.0cm; deceased.

These little guys were found at the harbour of the local island of Kulhudhuffushi, overtired and struggling to swim.
On arrival at our turtle rehabilitation centre, they were found to be suffering from an infection of the yolk sack. They are currently under treatment and close observation, and once they are healthy and strong we will be releasing them back into the ocean.

Updates May 2020

Ali is growing faster than his sibling Mizu. He is always looking for food and swimming around the pool, and we rarely see him napping!

Mizu is recovering from a recent facial infection and his breathing has improved.

 

June Updates

Sadly, Mizu was found unresponsive in his pool on the morning of 25 June. He was recovering from an eye infection.
