Description

Are you passionate about marine life and marine conservation? Then become a volunteer now and travel to Australia and help a Rehabilitation Centre treat injured and sick marine turtles that are brought in from the Great Barrier Reef and the Cape York Peninsula! Due to mostly human induced factors, the lives of these marine turtles—including the Green Sea Turtles, Flatback, Hawksbill, Olive Ridley and Loggerhead Sea Turtles—are being seriously threatened.

Many of these turtles are victims of a disease called “Floaters Syndrome”, have been injured by boats and discarded fishing gear or have digested marine debris thinking it was food. The Rehabilitation Centre relies on volunteers and donations to keep the project going. The facilities include a pre-release holding facility on an island. Join the team concerned about saving the lives of these sea turtles by nurturing them back to health and when they are well, releasing them back into one of the wonders of the world!

Highlights

• Volunteer and assist with rehabilitating sick and injured sea turtles.
