Turtle Rehabilitation
The Turtle is a flagship species for the conservation of the marine environment and is protected throughout most of the world. All seven species of marine turtles found globally are listed as vulnerable to extinction, endangered or critically endangered. The Hawksbill turtle, native to the Middle East, is listed as critically endangered with only an estimated 8,000 nesting females left worldwide. Without human intervention, the Hawksbill turtle will almost certainly become extinct within our lifetime. On a global scale the greatest threat to marine turtles are all caused by man.

Without exception, all of the turtles found in the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project were at one stage very sick or injured. Turtles are brought to Dubai’s Wildlife Protection Office or to the Aquarium team at Burj Al Arab by members of the public where they are then referred to veterinarian Dr Mirjam Hampel and the team at the Al Wasl Veterinary Clinic. Once the cause of sickness is identified and primary care has been administered, the turtles are returned to the Burj Al Arab Aquarium where the team can closely monitor their recovery. During the recovery process, the animals are subjected to ongoing veterinary examination and monitoring, with appropriate medication or surgery being administered as necessary.
