All Turtle Patients

Meet Chrissi, A Juvenile Olive Ridley Turtle

Chrissi, a juvenile olive ridley, came to us from Landaa Giraavaru Resort in Baa Atoll.

Intake Date: 10th April 2019
Length: 33 cm
Weight: 4.25 kg
Status: Current patient

Chrissi has a very swollen flipper from being entangled in a ghost net. We performed x-ray and ultrasound exams and are trying our best to save her flipper and avoid an amputation. She is currently not using her flipper, but we hope that with time and treatment she will recover.
