As Pash settled into a routine of cleaning tanks, taking rescue turtles for sea swims for rehabilitation she explains why some black tip reef sharks were taking a keen interest in the group!
Pash is settling in quickly at the Olive Ridley Project sanctuary, cleaning, looking after turtles and making ghost net bracelets to sell. Today Pash helped with a seaplane delivery, a turtle with an amputation and a mysterious egg! Oh, and she also started teaching Dr Minnie to freedive!
Following the amazing rescue of Harry the Hawksbill Turtle during December, Pash (one of our freediving instructors) was awestruck by the Olive Ridley Project and wanted to help.

When people find out I am a freediver, they first ask me how long I can hold my breath, and then how deep I can dive. After they have expressed shock and have shaken their heads, they usually say ‘I could never do that' and proceed to recite a number of complete myths about freediving. I then have to make a detailed rebuttal of their beliefs, and explain that ANYONE could achieve what I have.
