Felly the Turtle
Felly the Turtle This is a story of a turtle named Felidhoo, or "Felly".*
In March of 2004, on a sunny, calm day, a pregnant mother turtle heads to villa #45 in Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru to lay a clutch of 150 eggs. 2 weeks later, a vicious thunderstorm strikes, leaving only 30 eggs intact.
Banyan Tree marine biologists quickly transferred the 30 eggs to a safe location on Vabbinfaru beach just in front of the Marine Lab. One of the 30 eggs that survived the vicious thunderstorm, Felidhoo, or 'Felly' for short, was born against all odds on 28 April, 2004 in Vabbinfaru.
Now 5 years old, Felly is Banyan Tree's resident globe-trotting Green Sea Turtle and spokesperson, with a satellite tracking device on his shell. Follow him around and be kept in the loop on news, updates and projects!
