Turtles set for release

TWO green sea turtles will be released about 8.30am today at Flat Rock, Ballina.

Fletch the turtle was found on December 30, floating at Snapper Rocks, Evans Head.

On entry to the turtle hospital at Ballina's Australian Seabird Rescue (ASR), he weighed 8.9kg and was suffering float syndrome.

Hazel was rescued from Shark Bay at Iluka on January 3.

She was also suffering float syndrome and weighed 8kg.

ASR general manager, Kathrina Southwell, said both turtles have been eating a lot and have put on almost 2kg each.

If the weather is bad this morning, the turtles will be released later in the day.
