70 years of helping people to care for our ocean

By : Maryke Musson 

2022 was another very busy year for the Turtle Rescue Network with already more than 140 little post-hatchling loggerhead turtles rescued after washing up on beaches along the southern and western cape coastline. We are thrilled to be able to lend a hand to our conservation partners and friends at the Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation who asked us to assist with the final stage rehabilitation of 42 of these little sea turtles.

They arrived in style and have settled into their new temporary care facility very well. We continue with their health monitoring and checks to make sure they will be strong and ready for release back into the ocean.

We would like to highlight the efforts and kindness of all involved in the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of these endangered sea turtles during our World Turtle Day celebrations this year.
