Veterinarian at the Oceanographic Foundation in Valencia Jose Luis Crespo said he hoped the turtles would soon be able to start their new life at sea.

Baby turtles make for delicious and easy pickings for marine predators, so a small selection will be kept behind at the facility until they are big enough to be safely released.
