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: Released 7th May 2019

Chrissi has been adopted for Christina by Nicholas

Chrissi arrived with a very swollen flipper from being entangled in a ghost net. We performed x-ray and ultrasound exams and did our best to save her flipper and avoid an amputation. She took a while before starting to use her flipper, but with time and treatment she recovered.

Chrissi was released on 7th May 2019, just short of a month after arriving at the Rescue Centre. Watch here release below:
