Sorry for the silence folks! I have been away most of the summer helping my parents recover from hip surgeries and planning my wedding which is now in less than a week (yikes)!! The EAWST is still alive though and getting ready for the season.

Yesterday a giant green turtle was rescued on our beach, caught in the fishermen’s
net.  Even the fishermen were amazed at the size, saying
they had never seen such a big turtle. Measurements were taken – length of
shell : 1m 56 cm; width of shell : 108 cm; size of front leg taken from
armpit 57 cm ; back leg 32 cm. Huge!!


Thanks to Luciana, Cara and the Colobus Trust for helping in the rescue and sending me these pictures.


Let’s hope she stays clear of the nets in the future.
