Australia: Turtle released back into ocean after stint in rehab 13 Nov 2012

By Rebecca Davis

Koppey the green turtle has been released into the wild after being cared for at a rehabilitation centre.

Koppey was rescued from the Boyne River on September 14, where she was unable to dive, a condition in turtles known as "floating".

She arrived at Quoin Island Turtle Rehabilitation Centre with leeches and 90 barnacles on her shell.

Koppey would have faced a slow death if she had not been taken to the centre.

A volunteer at the centre had the honour of releasing Koppey on Sunday after she had spent a couple of months of feeding and caring for the turtle.

The Quoin Island Turtle Rehabilitation Centre is a new organisation and has been taking sick or injured turtles for almost a year.
