|from: ||Chamolia - Markopoulo|
On 30 April, "Apostolis", a 10 kilo/60 cm green turtle, arrived at the Rescue Centre from Chamolia (Markopoulo, Attika). A day earlier, it had been found in the sea, struggling to free itself from a plastic bag which had become wrapped around its head. The person who found the turtle (and after whom it is named) removed the plastic bag, and the turtle immediately swam away. However, the next day he found her again, barely breathing, with both her eyes swollen shut. After arriving at the RC, she was cleaned, given first aid, and will be given a detailed examination by our veterinarian. Many thanks to Mr Apostolis for his invaluable help in saving this turtle.
