Releasing our Resuscitated Turtle
"Scuba Do Zanzibar had an amazing "Earth Day" experience on the 22 April 2010. We rescued what appeared to be a lifeless, green turtle caught in a fishing net. It was an emotional effort involving mouth-to-nose resuscitation (not sure if it helped), but the turtle took it's first gasping breath as we lifted it onto the boat! Turtle recovered well in the Mnarani Aquarium for a couple days and was released on our Tanzanian National Turtle (KASA) Day which was on the 24th April. Thank you to the rescue team Amy Walton, Jan Luyckx, Julia Bishop, Jessie Greenspan, our boat captains and the Mnarani Aquarium team!!"
