Meet Dory, A Juvenile Olive Ridley Flipper Amputee

Dory was rescued from a ghost net along with Nemo and came to via Marine Savers.

Intake Date: 4th March 2019
Length: 35 cm
Weight: 4.55 kg
Status: Deceased 13th March 2019

Dory arrived with a very large wound and only half her damaged from right flipper left. We amputated the rest. We also treated her for a shell infection. Sadly we were not able to save Dory. She passed away nine days after arriving at the Rescue Centre, succumbing to her injuries. She was also severely emaciated from her ordeal.
