Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre

Activity Type
Great Barrier Reef, Wildlife

A voluntary not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the rehabilitation of sick and injured turtles. The Great Barrier Reef is home to six of the world’s seven species of marine turtles. A number of these are seriously threatened by a diverse range of natural and, more significantly, human-induced factors. The rehabilitation facilities are located in Cairns, which is where many of the sick and injured turtles that they care for are found.
