A Happy Update on Amo the Sick Turtle

By Ivana Vrselja May 13, 2012 Blog

A couple of weeks ago, our fishermen noticed an injured turtle among their catch. They brought it to the restaurant and we gave it temporary shelter in the aquarium below the restaurant’s floor. Gariful contacted the relevant authority in Pula who agreed to send their experts a couple of days later.

After three days recuperating at Gariful, the turtle, who was nicknamed Amo, was transferred by boat to Split for treatment. The good news is that all is well and the plan is to release Amo back into the sea with 10 other turtles on June 15 near Pula.
