An early morning start and another step on a journey that could eventually lead to this tropical sea turtle being released back into the wild. She was driven all the way from Anglesey, where she was found last November, to Hertfordshire. Six hours later and the team at the Royal Veterinary Hospital were preparing their unique patient. Getting a sea turtle into the scanning machine is no easy task, but experts need to check her lungs for damage. Olive ridleys can travel vast distances but its thought this one was carried by currents thousands of miles off course. Gel is being applied to prevent her skin from drying and shes being kept warm ready for her journey back to Anglesey while experts decide her future.

工作人员一早就开始准备踏上把这只来自热带海洋的海龟放归自然的旅程,而此前,他们还需要完成一件事。去年11月,这只海龟在英国威尔士的安格尔西岛被人发现,工作人员载着她从这里一直驶向英格兰赫特福德郡。六小时后,英国皇家兽医学院的一支团队正给这位特殊的患者做行前检查。想要把一只海龟放到扫描仪器中去可不是件易事,但专家们仍需为她检查肺损伤的情况。太平洋丽龟可长距离游动,但人们认为,这只落难的海龟是被洋流从数千海里以外冲过来的,因此她偏离了方向。医生正在为这只海龟涂抹防止皮肤干裂的凝胶,还为她保暖,以便在专家决定她未来何去何从的同时能够随时动身返回安格尔西岛。
