SEA TURTLES: Two young sea turtles were released.
TWO young sea turtles were released this month in the waters of Sa Dragonera Natural Park.
The turtles, named Ella and Ossa, were rescued a few months ago. Ossa was rescued in Palma’s Cala Gamba suffering from a respiratory illness. Ella, who was found completely covered in oil, was rescued in the Port of Soller.
The animals were subjected to various tests to help them regain their health through the Department of Environment’s programme of monitoring and recovery of sea turtles carried out by the Consortium for the Recovery of the Fauna of the Balearic Islands (COFIB) working in collaboration with the Palma Aquarium and the Veterinary Hospital of Aragon.
The release of the turtles was witnessed by a large audience of children from Ramon Llull primary school in Andratx.
