Releasing Turtles (June 2018)

Our main aim is to protect wild animals in their natural habitas, sea turtles althought endangered and protected by laws, hunted and sold in fish markets, small sizes as a pet while big sizes for their meat, blood and shells

In the markets sea turtles are handeled with great violence, the put them on their back to prevent them from crawling and this causes respiratory and digestive problems, draging them damages the shell, in addition to dehydration, maggots and skin infections all this need quick response and a time for rehabilitation

 

After a period of rehabilitation and recording the data of each turtle, we released a small loggerhead

A week later we released 4 adult female loggerhead

all brought from fish markets outside Alexandria city
