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.

This Thursday, 28th July 2016 the GSPCA undertakes one of its biggest moves, the last stage in the rescue and rehabilitation of Olivia.

Olivia, a large loggerhead turtle, is finally traveling south to complete the rehabilitation process prior to release in the warm waters off Gran Canaria.

Olivia, who nearly died back in March was found in cold shock on a wintery beach on the west coast of Guernsey.  If the GSPCA had not been alerted and been able to rescue her quickly she would have surely died.
