The Northland Age - - Front Page -

Two green sea tur­tles, Os­car and Kiwa, that were found on 90 Mile Beach al­most two years ago were re­leased off the coast of Tu­tukaka last week. Os­car, known at Kelly Tarl­ton’s Tur­tle Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­tre Sea Life for his happy na­ture and huge ap­petite, was cold, un­der­weight and suf­fer­ing from in­fected frac­tures of his flip­pers when he was found in July 2016. Kiwa was also suf­fer­ing from de­hy­dra­tion, and had a se­vere eye in­fec­tion when she was found. Both gained 15kg while in re­hab.
