Today is World Tuirtle Day and we think back to those we have helped and those looking for homes.

Every year the GSPCA helps turtles but two years ago we helped rescue Olivia the loggerhead turtle that was found in Guernsey on Vazon on a cold winter morning very close to death.

After months of care and a lot of help by many islanders, businesses, the States and so many more she was flown to Gran Canaria to be released back to the wild.

Her story featured on the Dodo website and received over 1.4 million views in a matter of days.

We are pleased to announce that the goldfish and musk turtles that were found abandoned in a green tank in direct sun light are now in a new home.

The young musk turtles are now living in a fantastic enclosure at Elizabeth College and the goldfish are living with GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne and his family.

The fish Kip and Kevin and turtles Helene and Dick were lucky to survive and the team at the GSPCA are overjoyed that they are now in good homes.


Fish and turtles now clean not green

On Saturday a member of the GSPCA were called out to rescue two turtles and two goldfish which were found outside in a very dirty tank.

When Geoff George Animal Collection Officer rescued the fish and turtles he had to quickly try and find a location with appropriate tanks to help temporarily house them whilst facilities were arranged at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

Thankfully staff at the Friquet Garden Centre in Castel offered their services where all four were transported to place them in suitable conditions.
