About this deal

For us humans, it’s a bit hard to tell one turtle from another so when we rescue them we use a system of coloured fingernail polish markings so that we can track individual health, feeding program and data collection during their time with us. Once the female sea turtle lays her eggs, she buries them in the sand so that they are hidden and protected.

The female sea turtle breeds with the male in shallow waters and later comes onto the beaches to lay her eggs.

Paved areas like roads and parking lots also create run-off that carries oils from cars into the water. This pack offers the option to adopt one of three different species, so you can ensure youre money goes to the turtle species you believe most strongly about. The Dolphin Discovery Centres Adopt a Dolphin Program supports the conservation of dolphins and the broader marine environment. Over the last few years, the project has had a team of local rangers, field biologists, and volunteers working tirelessly during the egg laying and hatching season, day and night, to protect the turtles.With your support, more corals that have been previously destroyed can be saved by growing them in a nursery before transplanting them back to the natural reefs. They make the longest migrations of any sea turtle and among the longest migrations of any vertebrate, sometimes crossing entire ocean basins just to feed. Although this species now shows signs of recovery thanks to a long-term, dedicated multinational conservation effort, its population is still only a small fraction of what it was when it was first discovered in the 1940s. Your donation will also help us provide essential funding for GPS tagging of our turtles and security cameras around our site.

If you would like to get more involved, you can join us at the Rescue Centre as a volunteer and help us care for our turtle patients.

Only through the generosity and support of nest adopters can we have the means to intervene and purchase eggs, which we then incubate in our hatchery. Leatherbacks also make the deepest dives of any sea turtle, regularly diving to depths greater than 1,000 m (3,281 ft) where no sunlight reaches.

Often what happens is as they swim up to the surface, they become trapped in fishing gear and end up drowning. Pre-booking your entry into all attractions is essential as same-day entry is subject to availability. In fact, until 1988 flatbacks were thought to be a subspecies of green turtle rather than a separate species. Endangered marine turtles are often washed up on beaches throughout the South West of our state, usually after storms which throw the young turtles out of their journey via the Leeuwin Current. Aggressive fishing practices, poaching for turtle shells and pollution (which turtle’s mistake for food) all contribute to the dwindling turtle population.Your adoption will assist People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES), a registered animal conservation charity.
