Meet Emme, Baby Loggerhead

Emme is a baby loggerhead sea turtle, who was brought to our rescue centre having been kept as a pet in a plastic bottle since she hatched. We estimate her to be 2-4 months old.

Intake Date: 04 July 2017
Length: 14 cm
Weight: 400 g
Released: 30 August 2017

Emme remained at the rescue centre for a few weeks to gain some strength and regain her ability to dive. She was successfully released on 30 August 2017.
Loggerhead sea turtles are extremely rare in the Maldives, so her presence here is very promising for the species!
