A turtle named Hope was successfully rescued after she washed up at Ramla Bay in Gozo with a net tightly entangled round its neck and flippers. 

The turtle was found by a family, who kept it calm with a towel soaked in sea-water and gave her the name. Nature Trust and Wildlife Rescue Team Malta thanked the family as well as the staff of Gozo Channel operations Limited.

Due to an extremely long car queue and the turtle’s serious condition, the rescuers could not afford to wait for hours in traffic. Therefore, the Gozo channel ferry staff kindly agreed to help the volunteer carry the large heavy box onto the ferry and off again the other side. 

‘Hope has now been handed over to one of our volunteers in Malta to be taken to the vet. We couldn’t have done it without their help.’

Hope’s condition is very serious and weak, but the experts at the rescue team will be doing their absolute best to nurse her back to health. 

All the animals rescued by the team are protected species and it is illegal in Malta to keep them as pets.
