Its been another busy week!We met Johanna from Wildlife Vets International who spent a day with us giving lectures on turtle and terrapin health and treatment. She inspected our tanks and also gave a health check to our four resident terrapins. We are very happy to report they were all given the all clear. Johanna will now spend a few days on the other islands and will return to us again briefly next week for some final training before returning to the UK.

Beach patrols have been continuing and we are happy to report more nests successfully hatching and yet another turtle came up to lay. One lucky family staying in a beach villa was there to watch as the turtle laid her eggs and then returned to the sea. While waiting for her to complete her nesting, Rachel was answering all sorts of questions from the whole family.
