Now and again fishermen bring us turtles that have been caught in their nets. The situation did not look too good for this Olive Ridley.
One of her flippers was hanging by a thread and the other had deep wounds. The story had a happy ending though. You can see photos of her surgery, rehabilitation and release on our facebook page. Just click here.
We couldn't have done it without the support of Cabo Verde Diving who provided a safe place in their rinse tank and then took her out on their boat.
