Today we visited the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre in Cairns, Australia. This was the first time I have been this close to these amazing animals.
The team at the center gave us the opportunity to take some photos and video so I thought I would share it here with you.
Turtles are hurt in the wild by ghost fishing nets, pollution, as well as hunting from various groups and they also suffer disorders where air can get locked under their shells which makes them float on the surface which means they cant dive. The Turtle Rehabilitation Center in Cairns, Australia helps nurse these injured turtles back to health to then release them back into the wild.
