Every year turtles big and small wash up on South West beaches, usually after storms which throw the young turtles out of their journey via the Leeuwin Current. The Dolphin Discovery Centre plays an integral part in their well being and recovery to ultimately rehabilitate and then release the turtles back into the warmer waters off Exmouth WA.
We feed and house these turtles at our own cost for months at a time and would love to have you help us out.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. This does not harm the turtle at all and wears off and has to be replaced every few days.
We have a Corporate Adopt a Turtle Project, where your business can be actively involved in adopting a specific turtle. Or you can just donate to the overall project.For more information on the The Leeuwin Current - pdf Click here to read about SQUIRTS STORY - pdf See Squirt Tracking Info - pdf
