Update on Turtle Rescue # 16

Turtle #16 remains at Gaya Island Resort Marine Centre (GIRMC) and is still being closely monitored by the team. The Wildlife Rescue Unit was joined by Dr. Nick Pilcher from the Marine Research Foundation to perform a laparoscopy at GIRMC to better determine her condition. While stable, her condition remains serious and she still requires regular treatment to aid the healing process.

During the laparoscopy, they were also able to confirm that Turtle #16 is a female with no history of prior nesting.

Let us all hope she recovers soon!
