Noah

Adopt a turtle. Adult male green sea turtle left profile, Lhaviyani Atoll, Maldives. Image.

Turtle ID Code: GR372

Noah is an on-off visitor to the lagoon in Kuredu. Some months of the year you can’t seem to escape him; he is everywhere. In September 2019 we saw him ten times! Other months, however, he seems to be on vacation somewhere else. But when you see him, keep in mind that he has no recollection of personal space. While taking photo ID pictures our biologist often has to back away from him since he will not be deterred from his path. If he wants to swim in one direction, he will do so, no matter what or who is in the way. That is Noah!
