Coco Collection’s Turtle Report

Coco Collection specialises in creating true boutique luxury on some of the most beautiful island in the Maldives.

Earlier this month, they celebrated the 3rd anniversary of the Olive Ridley Project Marine Turtle Rescue Centre at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu.

The partnership between Coco Collection and the Olive Ridley Project began back in 2015, when they embarked on a journey together to build the first veterinarian-led turtle rescue centre in the Maldives. To date, the rescue centre has treated 124 patients, of which 98 have been olive ridley turtles. 16 hawksbill turtles, 9 green turtles, and even 1 loggerhead turtle have made their way to the island.

The veterinarians have performed over 100 surgeries, with some turtles requiring multiple operations.

Over the past three years, 59 turtles have been rehabilitated and released back into the wild.

Coco Collection along with the Olive Ridley Project are even more determined than ever to work harder to decrease the number of injured turtles and to ensure that as many turtle patients are rehabilitated and released back to the wild.
