Every day we see strength and weight gained on Olivia the loggerhead turtle who has in the last few days made strides with her movement in her pen.

Last week she was started on solid food, that is if you can call squid solid but it is the first whole food she has received.

Having arrived and put on fluids then moved on the a liquidised food it has been wonderful to see her consume whole food with a little help.

We have been busy with the finishing touches with her heated pool which has been an awesome team effort from local support.

The large pool has been donated by Spa De La Mare and they have been very helpful setting it up.

Insulation has been donated by Guernsey Builders to help keep the heat in and assist with lowering the running costs.

To ensure she has the right sort of clean salt water the Guernsey Aquarium have helped supply it with assistance of States Works who delivered it on Friday.

Finally Waitrose Rohais have donated a large amount of squid which she is now eating.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager "It is wonderful to see Olivia gain in strength each day and we are hoping to get her in the pool today."

"It has been an amazing effort to get her to this stage and she is getting stronger every day."

"We'd like to say a huge thank you to Guernsey Aquarium, States Works, Guernsey Builders, Waitrose and Spa De La Mare as well as all that have doanted to her care so far."

"Olivia has been enjoying a very small paddling pool so we could monitor her in very shallow water to start."

"We are hoping that today could be the big day to get her in the large heated pool which is on site and we will update everyone later."

"She is still has some way to go before she is strong enough to travel but we continue to do everything we can for her."
