Meet Moofushi, Another Juvenile Ghost Net Victim

Moofushi was sent to us by sea plane from Constance Moofushi Resort in Ari Atoll. She is a juvenile olive ridley turtle.

When Moofushi arrived, her front right flipper was just barely still attached. The humeral bone was completely cut. We had no option but to amputate her flipper. She recovered well from surgery and was released as soon as her stitches were out.
