Turtle Conservation Project Gili Air in Indonesia with Oceans 5 follow up

Turtle Conservation Project Gili Air in Indonesia with Oceans 5 follow up

As a follow up to the original story about the Turtle Conservation Project Gili Air in Indonesia with Oceans 5, almost three months ago, it's time for this story or rather follow up.

From the 88 turtles that survived the ordeal before being looked after at Oceans 5 dive center, there are now 80 left alive. In general they're doing very well and eating each day like there's no tomorrow!

They tend to gang up on their weaker family members by nibbling on their front flippers which in the long run would hurt them and kill them. Some of them will therefor be isolated for periods of time, until their flippers are healed again.

Things are looking good and during my next visit, scheduled for late February next year, I will provide a next update.
