Hope is a juvenile green sea turtle who has the cutest little personality. She was admitted to our centre on the 3rd May 2020 after being kept illegally as a pet.Hope suffers from a condition called lordosis (curvature of the spine). The cause of lordosis is still unconfirmed. Hope will not grow properly due to her shell deformity and so she cannot be released to the wild. Hope is a wonderful ambassador for our centre and a great educational tool to show people what can happen when wild sea turtles are kept illegally as pets.
