Meet the Locals

Myrtle Turtle

Meet Myrtle the Turtle

Myrtle the turtle was rescued in 2013 after she was involved in a boating accident. She was nursed back to heath by the team at SEA LIFE Manly Sanctuary. She recovered from her wounds, but air became trapped under her shell as it healed, causing her to float. To keep her swimming happily our team fitted her with weight plates on the back of her shell. She now swims around with ease in our Day and Night on the Reef zone!
