Many of you are asking for news from Okely, the green sea turtle welcomed to the Care center* last month following a speargun injury to the head. Thank you for your kind attention.
After regular sessions in the resting pool, Okely is able to swim but is not able to float properly: its buoyancy is impaired. It turns unwittingly on the carapace and needs help to turn around. Okely can thus not be left alone in the water without close supervision.
Okely also needs help with feeding and hydration. It is fed a mixture of fishes, squids, vitamins and water.
We are doing everything in our power for its recovery, but a positive outcome is not guaranteed…
We will make sure to keep you informed. Thank you to all of you for your support!
