In the Evros Delta, I like to:

Injured Loggerhead sea turtle Caretta caretta in Evros Delta

Evros Delta Management Authority personnel found a Loggerhead sea turtle Caretta caretta into a shallow canal of Drana lagoon.  The turtle was unable to leave this canal.

The animal was collected and transferred at Antheia beach in order to be released at the open sea.  However, the turtle was weak and unable to swim.  At that time, there was a communication with the "Action for Wildlife" society and it was decided that the animal should be sent to Thessaloniki for nursing.  Finally, we were informed that the turtle was hit on the head...

We hope, the turtle will recover soon and will be able to swim in the open sea...
