The turtle is back in the sea

Today, the young loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta), found injured and exhausted by Morigenos researchers in June, has been successfully released back into the wild. In the early morning Dr. Zlatko Golob, a veterinarian specialist, examined it for the last time and confirmed that it is in good health. The turtle has successfully recovered at the Aquarium Piran and awaited the day to swim free again. We are proud to have contributed to the successful release of the turtle into the sea and wish it a long and happy life.
