We rescue an endangered sea turtle, and keep her in our make shift marina hospital for treatment.
TT is a black sea turtle (aka. Pacific green), she is aprox 50 years old and weighs 100kg! She is likely a breeding female, and so saving her was extremely important. We are very grateful to all of our supporters, PROFEPA, the biologists, vets and the marina folk who helped make this happen.
