The most common turtles around the Gili Islands are the Hawksbill and Green Turtle , but there are also Olive Ridleys.

 

Oceans 5 dive resort is taking care of 50 little Hawksbill turtles and 1 big Olive Ridley turtle. Twice a day they are getting food and new seawater. The little ones are growing fast and the big one is still recovering of an injury.

But yesterday Oceans 5 dive resort released a few turtles. they were released close to the oceans, and a few minutes later they found the water.

Hopefully we see them later during some dives... Happy travels little ones....
