It is with great joy that we announce the departure of Porites for the big blue!
The team was able to say their goodbyes during a moving moment shared with Vaimalama Chaves, Nicolas Fleury and the local residents who had taken her in.
Porites joined the Care center in December 2021 following an injury due to a spear in the neck and a buoyancy issue. She was unable to dive. After months of rehabilitation with weights placed on her shell to teach her how to dive again, Porites returned to the Pacific ocean.
We wish her a long life!
