101 Rehabiliated Turtles Released

I know a few of you are at Madinat Jumeirah at the moment. Did you catch the turtle release on the beach by Pier Chic today? 101 Turtles were introduced back into the wild by local school children. It was a great thing to watch the kids place them down and the sea float them away!

I'll post some pics later ...

When we were at Madinat 2 weeks ago we saw all the turtles and my children loved watching them, what a great thing to do

It was amazing!

My son was lucky enough to have got to release one - got some great snaps of him! He loves turtles and has always enjoyed going to see them the 'poorly' turtles here, so getting to send them back home to the ocean was lovely.

Will add them to my profile when I get time. The turtle rehab scheme have a Facebook profile with some pics on of today too :-)

Would love to see the photos. Are the turtles released at specific times? Is there any way to check if one is likely to happen whilst we are in Dubai?

Oh and it's normally done on a special day, yesterday was world turtle day or something. You can track the turtles on www.seaturtles.org and follow the project on FB: http://www.facebook.com/turtle.rehabilitation

It's quite regularly, the last one was in April.
