Remember how worried we were, that the little turtle wouldn't make it through the night? Well, following 4 months of rehabilitation, we are delighted to report that she has made full recovery and has now been released!

indicators before release
On the 6th of February, the day had come for Gili to leave the rescue centre and head back into the big blue! As Gili is a resident of Gili Lankanfushi's house reef, the team agreed that sending her back to us for release might help her settle back in, so that is exactly what we did. We joined the Four Seasons team to complete her final release assessment before whisking her back to Gili Lankanfushi for her big release! Almost 20 guests and hosts came to witness Gili re-enter her home and a round of applause went up as she swam away toward the reef. Check out our release video, put together by our Marketing team!
Typical Gili- she got cramp in her back flippers during her release, which meant she treated our guests to a few back flips before swimming off properly..
