Meet Jamie, A Ghost Net Victim From Raa Atoll

Jamie is an adult female olive ridley turtle and ghost net victim. She was found entangled in Raa Atoll.

Intake Date: 1st March 2019
Length: 67 cm
Weight: 26.5 kg
Status: Deceased 26th March 2019

Jamie had a wound to her flipper and a skull injury. Her flipper injury did not require surgery. On X-ray we found an abnormal area of gut inside her. We planned on a barium study to investigate this further. She ate the odd crab but not fish. She was also very buoyant. Sadly Jamie passed away after about three weeks at the Rescue Centre.
