Background

Ayala is a sub-adult Loggerhead sea-turtle and was admitted to the center in November 2016. She was unintentionally caught by a fisherman on a rod from shore, who reported the case to The Nature and Parks Authority and the rescue center. Ayala arrived with two fishing hooks caught in her throat and a fishing line coming out of her mouth. Luckily, we were able to remove the hooks without surgery (through the mouth). Later, when she underwent an x-ray to make sure there were no more hooks hiding in her intestine and that she was not suffering from other internal injuries, one more hook was discovered in her oesophagus. This hook was removed without surgery as well. Following the procedure, Ayala had some internal bleeding that made her week and anaemic, therefore calling for a longer rehabilitation time than expected. Now that Ayala has a clean bill of health, she is ready to return to the sea.
