Five loggerhead turtles-Rosy, Ricardo, Spartacus, Kiko and Bizu were released last November from the Blue Flag beach of Paradise Bay Hotel at Ċirkewwa. These marine turtles were found injured in our sea after swallowing fishing hooks, nylon and fishing lines. They were given the necessary medical treatment for several weeks.

A key solution to protect these creatures is by educating the younger generation. We have to keep our sea clean from waste especially plastic bags because every year a number of turtles die suffocated by mistaking plastic bags for jellyfish. With our help, these marine species can live longer in cleaner seas.
