Meet Nadia

Nadia is an adult female Olive ridley sea turtle, who was found in Baa atoll.

Nadia, a ghost net victim, arrived with an injured front right flipper and severe lacerations to her neck. We tried to save her flipper, but unfortunately we had to eventually remove it. After successfully recovering from surgery at the rescue centre, she was taken to Juvenile Naifaru for further rehabilitation and was replaced by Penny, who needed veterinarian care.
