The injuries for whom are treated more than 50 turtles each year are of 3 types :

  • Fishing injuries (amputations due to fishing gear entanglement, ingestion of hooks...).

  • Deliberated human injuries imposed by fishermen (head injuries).

  • Accidental injuries (collision with speedboats, ingestion of plastic bags... all the problems relative to the pollution, in general).

Once rehabilitated , they are released back to the sea either from the beach (Adults) or by boat (Juveniles or if they are missing a flipper).
