All Turtle Patients

Meet Lulu, A Boat Strike Victim

Lulu is a sub-adult olive ridley turtle and the victim of a boat strike. She came to us via Marine Savers and has severe cracks in her shell.

Intake Date: 2nd December 2018
Status: Current Patient



Due to the cracks in her shell, Lulu cannot be submerged in water. Therefore we have converted one of our tanks to a padded dry dock for her! Before we can repair her shell, we first need to ensure that she is free from infection. Whilst we treat her wounds, the shell may heal itself.
