Dubai’s Turtle Rehabilitation Unit has successfully satellite tagged and returned a huge 150kg Green Turtle along with 15 critically endangered Hawksbill Turtles back to their natural habitat, following several months of rehabilitation at Burj Al Arab and Madinat Jumeirah. The turtle was named Jade by one fan who won the Twitter and Facebook naming competition.
