Turtle Health Research Facility

The world first Turtle Health Research facility at James Cook University currently provides an environment in which to study sea-turtle health in great detail under suitable conditions.

Help us care for the Turtles

Your donation will assist with the ongoing support of Turtle hatchlings in their natural environment.  This "Turtle Nursery" will protect hatchlings from predators while allowing them exposure to sunlight via retractable shade sails.

The Turtle Nursery will provide a unique and much needed opportunity to study sick and healthy turtles in parallel, which will address important conservation issues for these endagered species.
