Trasher was delivered to Scuba Junkie’s Mabul Turtle Rehabilitation Centre in a weak and unresponsive state, but slowly recovered following 10-day course of treatment supervised by Sabah Wildlife Departments’ Wildlife Rescue Unit (WRU) veterinarians. After getting a final check-up Trasher was released on 24th June sporting a satellite transmitter to provide government officials, marine biologists and conservationists with an insight into the behavior and movements of rehabilitated turtles. Good luck Trasher!
