WATCH: Turtle Mania Reaches Its Climax

 

The last turtle nest for 2020 hatched early last night and Nature Trust was there, as always, together with ERA, and other officials and volunteers, to ensure that these babies head out to sea in the safest way possible.

Nature Trust says that this was the nest that had the most challenging conditions, due to the various storms which hit the islands recently and also due to sea swells.

 

The last nest for 2020 hatched early this evening. Being the nest that had the most challenging conditions (due to storms and sea swells), the work carried out by those involved resulted in an overwhelmingly positive result . Two of the hatchlings that showed signs of extreme dehydration were assisted for the first few minutes on recommendation of our vet. They were immediately released once fully recovered to make their way to the sea with the rest.NTM thanks all its volunteers, our vet Dr Grupetta, ERA officials, MTA and all those who helped in making this busy nest year a success. Data on the last nest will as always be issued by ERA in an official report.Credit video: Mark Zammit Cordina
