This critically endangered juvenile Hawksbill Sea Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) is under observation after it was found just floating near Paseo del Mar by some local kids. It has few superficial wounds and the hind flippers are not intact after maybe trapped in a fish net. I don’t know, but maybe, its stranding is on perfect timing as it will occupy the tank of our soon-to-be-released juvenile Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas) patient. But what is good is that, people, especially those residing near the coastal line, now begin to realize that biodiversity is fundamental to life on earth.
I need some help docs Irmachelle Pastor Arnoco and Rita Leonila Pepito Taclob. But seriously, when will this Turtle fever end?
