Last month after Storm Ciaran a loggerhead turtle was rescued and we are pleased to say from just over 800g without Barnacles that Barnacle Bill is now over 1200g’s in weight

We have two out of the three parts of the CITES paperwork required for her travel and she is doing well.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are still clearing up after Storm Ciaran at the GSPCA, but we are pleased to give some amazing news on Barnacle Bill.”

“When Barnacle Bill she weighed over 1200g’s with her barnacles attached and 800g’s without them.”
