We are in the process of re establishing the marine turtle rescue and rehabilitation.

Over the years we have saved over 200 turtles which have been returned and released on the northwest coast of WA. Mostly Loggerheads (Endangered) and Greens & Flat backs (both vulnerable). Flat backs being the only indigenous marine turtle. These turtles are swept south in the winter and wash up on the beaches.

If you find a marine turtle on the beach, please DO NOT put it back in the water, it will not survive. Ring DPAW wildcare helpline on (08) 9474 9055 for advice.
