Young Turtle Rescued and Released, Just in Time for Christmas!!!

This Christmas Eve Mr and Master Nunez (pictured with Eric Shaw, below) were told of a turtle in difficulties in the bad weather.  They quickly responded by rescuing the young turtle and contacting the Helping Hand Trust.

The turtle was clearly exhausted.  We were able to administer medical assistance and give it time to recover.  Once it had regained its strength we released it back into a calm area of water at Queensway Quay Marina, which thanks to its advanced design is a clean and friendly environment for sea life.

The Nunez' have previously been of great assistance to marine life and the Helping Hand would like to give them a big thank you for their prompt action in saving this graceful visitor to our waters.

A video of the release will be up shortly.

Merry Christmas!
