Baby turtles are doing well at Oceans 5 dive resort

A few months ago Oceans 5 dive resort took care of 90 Green Sea Turtles and 1 Hawksbill Turtle.

At this moment we can say that the turtles are doing extremely well. There are no diseases around the eyes, no infections on their bodies and even the hawksbill turtle is totally recovered.

During the period of stay at Oceans 5 dive resort 8 of the baby Green Sea turtles died. At this moment Oceans 5 is taking care of 82 Green Sea turtles. The average length of the baby turtles are 14 cm. They get feed 3-4 times a day and every week their shells are been cleaned. The sea water in the water basins is changed 2-3 times a day.

Most of the time the baby turtles are flouting around on the surface. Oceans 5 will release them when they are big enough and when they can stay on the bottom of the water basins.
