Peggy, our injured turtle, return to her ocean

Peggy is a sea turtle found injured in the Maldives by our friends from Marine Savers (the animal was trapped in fishing nets) and entrusted to the teams of Pairi Daiza in 2016. After three years of patiently caring for her here in Belgium (Peggy suffered from lung infections and had to have a leg amputated), the turtle was released into “her” Indian Ocean in June 2019, equipped with a GPS tracker to monitor her movements.
