Acorn the turtle returns to Maldives waters - healthy & happy

| No TrackBacks

 

We thought you might like an update on little Acorn, the rescue Hawksbill turtle.

Back in March we told you about our then Dive Master Trainee, Sandeep, at Emperor Laamu rescuing a small Hawksbill turtle that had become entangled in nets floating in the sea. Acorn was flown to Marine Savers Maldives to be cared for and is back to full health.

We have recently received this video showing Acorn's release into the wild. Thank you to the helpful staff at Olive Ridley Project for their assistance and this update. A special mention goes to the amazing staff at Marine Savers for doing such a great job bringing Acorn back to full health.
