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. We are so excited to follow her story, as she is helping in the most wonderful way. She was accepted onto their volunteer programme and is currently in the Maldives for two weeks helping the sanctuary! Go Pash!
