@oceansafaricapetrib and @oceanrafting are excited to welcome a new member of the family... Ange the Olive Ridley Turtle! We recently sponsored this beautiful girl through @cairnsturtlerehab and couldn't be happier to introduce you to her! The work done at the rehabilitation center is critically important and without the support of sponsors, staff and volunteers the center would be unable to continue their work rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing sick and injured turtles back into the wild. Ange was initially transferred from Weipa's, Gulf of Carpentaria by Pennefather Traditional Owners Turtle and Ghost Net Program then flown to Cairns via QANTASLINK. She is an adult female aged between 95-100 years. Her injuries were sustained in a suspected crocodile attack while caught in a ‘ghost net’. Ange received extensive injuries to the head, face, flippers and carapace. She also has damaged lungs and floats, therefore is unlikely to be able to be released for sometime as she is unable to forage for food or sleep beneath the water’s surface. She has been eating up to 70 squid per day during her rehabilitation stay. Her progress is constantly monitored and when Angie is able to ‘sink or swim’ beneath the surface she may be able to be released.
We 💙 being able to share our office with these beautiful creatures!! 🐢😍
Our Cephalopod friends have been showing up a lot at the reef recently and we are loving it!! Check out this gorgeous octopus who stopped by to say hi on Wednesdays tour!! 🐙😍
