    Critically endangered species of turtles are given special attention and primary care is administrated to the ones that are ill.

    Under the observation of veterinarians they are returned to the Burj Al Arab Aquarium.

    If needed, few turtles are even given proper medication along with surgery administration.

    Those species of turtles that are too weak to take advantage from the treatment, they are sent to the Central Veterinary Research Laboratory, where experiments and analysis is done to see the reason behind the illness
