The Green Committee has adopted a turtle currently undergoing rehabilitation at Fort San Lucjan under the care of the Nature Trust Malta Wildlife Rescue Team. The turtle, named Giovanna, is a young loggerhead and was found floating in the Grand Harbour on 28th February 2017. She had an embedded hook and was entangled in many metres of fishing line and bamboo sticks. Giovanna has had the hook removed, is receiving treatment and appears to be doing very well, which augurs well for her eventual release back into the wild.
