Dozens of turtles to be released back into the ocean in Dubai

Dozens of rehabilitated turtles will be released back into the ocean this week.

The rescued reptiles will make their way back into the water at Jumeirah Al Naseem's beach at 9am on Thursday April 25.

The 50 creatures have been looked after and nursed back to good health by staff at the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project which is based at the hotel.

The centre has helped nurture, raise and release hundreds of critically endangered turtles back into the wild since the project began in 2004.

Visitors can learn about the dangers these magnificent creatures face from over-fishing, pollution and global warming.

For this week's turtle release, guests from Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Madinat Jumeirah are being invited to attend.

However, since it is a closed event with no public access, keep an eye on Time Out Dubai for the latest from the day.
Free (for hotel guests). Thu Apr 25, Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim (04 366 8888).
