An injured Loggerhead Turtle was rescued by a youth who had been fishing on a boat near St Paul’s Bay.

According to posts on the Facebook Boating Group, on seeing the turtle,  the youth immediately contacted Nature Trust Malta after taking the turtle onto the boat. The youth posted that the turtle might have been hit by a boat. Nature Trust Malta took the turtle for care and said that it was injured due to a fight with another turtle which is not out of the ordinary. He explained that the veterinarian will release the turtle after it is taken care of.
