Some Positive Numbers 🥰 73 Baby Turtles Hatch Over The Weekend 🐢

Slow N Steady 🐢

Following a successful period of incubation, 62 turtle hatchlings initially emerged from a marked nest in Ramla Bay on Saturday.

Nature Trust Malta members who were present celebrated the healthy hatchlings and worked with the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) to help guide the turtles safely towards the water’s edge.

All photos found in this article were taken using a night vision camera by Roy Davidson (officially appointed photographer with permit). This was done in order to not cause potential harm to the hatchlings by using bright white lights.


More Good News 🐢 🐢 🐢

11 more hatchlings emerged on Sunday 💚

A further 11 turtles hatched last night in Ramla Bay, Gozo, from the same nest where the 62 hatched on Saturday-Sunday night, Nature Trust reported today.

This was the first confirmed turtle nest in Gozo in 70 years.


The hatchlings come just days after a turtle named Dodo was released in Għajn Tuffieħa after a year-long rehabilitation program, as a result of Nature Trust & ERA’s work 👇
