Join us and volunteer to Rescue, research and Rehabilitate different species of Sea Turtles at Australia's Amazing Great Barrier reef! This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singoli
Coppie
Gruppi
50+

Venture into 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 are being seriously threatened including the Green Sea Turtles, Flatback, Hawksbill, Olive Ridley and Loggerhead Sea Turtles.

To conserve these beautiful sea turtles and their habitat, this rehabilitation facility that was established since 2000, works closely with several conservation groups including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and EPA National Park Rangers. 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 nursing them back to health and when they are well, releasing them back into one of the wonders of the world!

Typical day

As a volunteer at the project you become part of team that nurse the sick and injured sea turtles on the island. The project receives no help from the Government and relies on volunteers and donations. Some of the tasks will not be glamorous but you will have a lot of fun.

You will travel to the island by boat and help out with several tasks which includes but not limited to:
