Meet Some of the Current And Past Turtle Patients at the ORP Marine Turtle Rescue Centre


Baby loggerhead turtle blowoing bubbles
Emme, a baby loggerhead turtle, was brought to the Rescue Centre after having been kept as a pet from hatching. Emme was successfully released after recovering for a few weeks.


The ORP Marine Turtle Rescue Centre at Coco Palm Dhuni in Baa Atoll can accommodate 8 turtle patients at the time. The turtles are cared for by our resident Turtle Veterinarian and a team of interns and volunteers.  Injured turtles are brought to the rescue centre from all over Maldives, mostly by boat, but some times by seaplane!

Guests at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu can visit the turtles and join the daily feeding sessions.

You can follow our current patients on Facebook.
