Louisa Is Learning To Swim With A Missing Flipper

Louisa Is Learning To Swim With A Missing Flipper
Dec 28 2023 Share

Wildlife Rescue Team Malta shared a video of Louisa, the group’s currently largest turtle in rehabilitation. 

Louisa was found by the team in November of 2022 and weighs around 70-75kg. She was spotted with entanglement around her front right flipper and, being too tight, forced the amputation of said flipper due to cutting off circulation.

‘Louisa is learning to swim with a missing flipper, but her appetite is very good, and she’s making massive progress’, the team explained. 

Animals like Louisa would need people’s help, and now people can donate or virtually adopt the rescued animals. 

All the details for the process can be found on the Wildlife Rescue Team’s social media page, with basic adoptions going up for €30 and Super Adoption going up for €60 – each with their own benefits.
