Remember Yertle the Turtle?
A few weeks ago we were unfortunate enough to meet. Yertle got her left flipper in a net, and was delivered to CORE sea, by the caring crew of Sail Rock Divers.
Everything worked amazing, and we patted ourselves on the backs quite a bit, but unfortunately for Yertle, the story is far from over.
Yertle lost her front left flipper in the process and is now living in a small basin in the rescue facility, because it would be too dangerous for any endangered species (this one’s a Hawksbill Turtle) to be released with a massive handicap.
Fortunately, there’s quite a lot that can be done. The DMCR would like to give Yertle a fresh start, with a prosthetic flipper. Pretty cool, huh?
Unfortunately, cool stuff costs money. Money which Yertle doesn’t have, but maybe we can lend a limb?
Not sure if this is even possible? Neither were we, but take a look at this link:
I’m sure you can’t wait to flash your credit card to help build this ridiculously cool, bionic turtle, and get her back to Koh Phangan. But wait a few days so we can figure out how much this is going to cost.
There’s going to be totally awesome shirts involved. As usual.
Your marine reptile lovers of Phangan.
