When you will come over to see turtles Clinic from Moorea, you will now enjoy our new informative panels realized thanks to support of the Vilebrequin company, the Pacsafe‘s one, the Moorea Dolphin Center, the Foundation Nature et Découvertes and the InterContinental Resort and Spa Moorea. Those panels will inform you about the different nurseries and lagoons we do have at the Clinic. Moreover, you will discover the boarders of the moment, their diseases and the location they are placed in. We do actually welcome 14 sea turtles : 12 green turtles and 2 hawksbill ones. Matapo and Tortilla (the 2 hawksbill turtles) are placed in the “resting area”, a home area for turtles dependent on human for their survival. If you have chance, you will catch sight of Apetahi and Tuffy, two green turtles placed in the rehabilitation area. Then, you will observe the babies from 2 years old and those of a few months old in the 7 nurseries placed on the sides of the Clinic and dedicated for turtles requiring regular cares or to isolate turtles for a short period of time.
