Our project rescues, rehabilitates and releases stranded and distressed sea turtles as part of our conservation mission. With the support of organisations and volunteers along the Western Cape's coast, hundreds of sea turtles have been saved, reared to full strength and released back into the wild. Loggerhead and leatherback turtles nest on the coast and are common patients of our clinic, we regularly rehabilitate stranded green, olive ridley and hawksbill sea turtles that wash up on our shores.
With a polluted ocean the increase in turtles that need rescuing and access to rehabilitation is constantly increasing.
Our team of experts are on hand to rescue turtles that washup in need on the African coast. This is often a majority of loggerheads and leatherbacks but our clinic has welcomed stranded green, olive ridley and hawksbill sea turtles that have washed up and in need on the African coast. After rehabilitation our clinic's mission is to reintroduce the turtles back into the ocean
This project is rescuing and rehabilitating turtles to prevent them from dying due to pollution in the ocean. The long term goal is to ensure these turtles to not become endangered
