We conducted physical examinations of 8 green turtles (Chelonia mydas) with boat strike injuries caught repeatedly near Mabul Island (lat 4.246°N, long 118.630°E), Malaysia, where 1 adult female showed evidence of newly recorded injuries in every capture. The healing progress of boat strike injuries on this turtle and 7 other green turtles of various size classes with similar injuries was documented through repetitive captures from between August 2010 and November 2017. We provide the first report of its kind on the incidence of newly documented boat strike injuries on repeatedly captured wild green turtles at their foraging ground.
