Submitted by Steve on 22:01, 20th Jun, 2016 | 0

Over the last few months the very generous Waitrose Rohais staff and store have been helping with feed for Olivia the loggerhead turtle.

Both the store and the staff have been helping donate the squid that she seems to really enjoy from the Waitrose Rohais fresh fish counter.

On Friday last week as a way of a thank you two of the Waitrose staff popped along to the GSPCA at feeding time and had the unique opportunity to feed Olivia in her enclosure at the GSPCA.

On Fish Friday last week the wonderful and generous Waitrose Rohais staff and store helped once again towards Olivia the loggerhead turtle.

Since she started eating on her own just over 2 weeks ago she is now keen to eat all she can.

Every Friday if you have a My Waitrose card the fresh fish counters in Waitrose offer a 20% discount. On Fish Friday last week Waitrose Rohais not only donated a further 4kg of squid for Olivia the amazing staff also chipped in for a further 4kgs to help feed the loggerhead turtle at the GSPCA.

BREAKING NEWS - Olivia the Loggerhead Turtle has started eating on her own & her appeal continues to help her

Submitted by Steve on 11:05, 18th May, 2016 | 0

Last night Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager and a number of visitors went to turn Olivia the Loggerhead Turtles lights off and witnessed an extraordinary event.

When she was first rescued she was extremely close to death and barely breathing or moving. Over the last two months the GSPCA have been working hard to care for her but sadly she has refused to eat meaning that the team have had to feed her directly.

She continues to swim well and we  continue to appeal for funding and transportation to get her to the Canary Islands.

Olivia needs your help to get her home - loggerhead turtle donation & plane appeal

Submitted by Steve on 22:35, 3rd May, 2016 | 0

Olivia needs your help.

Two months on and Olivia the loggerhead turtle that was found extremely close to death when she was rescued on Vazon has come to a point where she is now ready to take the next big step.

When she was found she could hardly move as she was so cold, hungry, dehydrated and weak. She is now swimming well and we now need to find her transportation to the Canary Islands.

The next big step for Olivia is to get her back to a warmer climate and a rescue centre with experience to finish her rehabilitation.
