Meet Ellie, the eastern long-necked turtle

Ellie was rescued by a concerned member of the public who found her on a roundabout with a broken shell and brought her into AREPH. Ellie was immediately assessed on arrival and given pain relief. She was xrayed to rule out any severe shell or skeletal damage. Luckily for her, the only damage was a broken carapace (top shell) piece. She was treated, and as soon as her injuries are resolved, she will go to a carer for rehabilitation and release.
Another happy story for the staff at AREPH! And for Ellie, of course!
