Flippity Do-Da Day for Jag Walk

This week jag walk had a splendid little treat. Hawksbill anyone? Jag walkers said “yes please”!

This day heroes would be made as they came upon a young hawksbill, lying on its back. The team thought it was far-gone as they walked up to it. Stephanny Arroyo, put on her gloves and lifted the tiny yearling and it immediately came to life like a J.K. Rowling novel.

“It felt exhilarating to have rescued an innocent critically endangered species from a grisly death”, words from a proud and jubilant Phil Chapman. The team decided it was healthy and released the little bugger and it scurried right back to sea. Flip it over and flip it out.

Good work team!
