Some great news about our little traveling turtle.

“Alvi is on a mission and finding himself in the high seas at the moment. What a brave little green turtle. He was rescued after washing up on the beach at Struisbaai and recovered well after we removed a plastic bag from his throat. Alvi was fitted with a satellite tag, supplied by the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and Environment, and released off Cape Point at the end of last year. He spent the first 4 months between Melkbos and Langebaan, a real Weskus local, and then travelled all along the continental shelf right into Namibian waters.”
