Turtle ID Code: GR303

Jules Verne might have travelled 20000 leagues under the sea and through the centre of the earth, but it seems he has settled in the lush sea grass meadows of the Kuredu Lagoon! He is one of just a few mature males that we have been seeing grazing in the lagoon regularly. Seems like his travelling days are over and he enjoys the beautiful reefs and sea grass meadows.
