I was recently browsing for news on a turtle we found drifting between two of our boats, and bumped in some great blogs about wildlife conservation.
Both blogs are written by MCSS, the Marine Conservation Society Seychelles, and the posts are about the every day life and tasks of the volunteers.
Following the blogs, readers can get updates about recent environmental projects and also about rescued turtles, recovering in the rehabilitation center.
In addition to above blogs, every now and than there are some interesting news on the Nature Seychelles webpage at http://www.natureseychelles.org/ which also worth regular visit.
The photo above is taken from the MCSS FB page. He is not Barnie, the turtle, we found at our base, in the Inter-Island Quay, but a success story, Eden. He has been a patient at the MCSS rehabilitation center for about four months now. It was found around the Eden Island marina, bleeding from a propeller cut on its carapace. When MCSS team got him, he was having problems eating by itself and also problem with its buoyancy. After intensive treatment Eden got stronger. He is now eating on his own, and has also started to dive under water.
Barnie, our rescued Hawksbill turtle died after two weeks of MCSS' careful nursing. He was very week, when we found him, he couldn't lift his head above water and unfortunately he did not make it.
