Our juvenile turtles Kanahau, Tani and Aoru have been released after 𝟡 𝕞𝕠𝕟𝕥𝕙𝕤 at the Tahiti Sea turtle rehabilitation center of Tahiti!
Released by the singer Ayo, the veterinarian and coordinator of the Sea turtle rehabilitation center, Jade, and the manager of Top Dive Tahiti, Gäelle, the 3 juveniles were able to safely return to the ocean.
Found on Tetiaroa in January 2023, they were trapped in their nest by roots and coral. Some, like Aoru, were even trapped in shells! After a few months of care and rehabilitation, the 3 juveniles were perfectly healthy and measured around 16 cm in shell length.
We invite you to watch the release video below.
We would like to thank Ayo and Top Dive Tahiti for their support! And good luck to Kanahau, Tani and Aoru!
