Hi supporters of Australian Seabird Rescue! My name is Kath and I am the General Manager of Australian Seabird Rescue and the Ballina Byron Sea Turtle Hospital. I am really excited about our new website!
As of 30th January 2018, we have ten sea turtles in care. We have the largest Hawksbill turtle we have ever rescued, her name is Dolly. At the moment Dolly is eating more than 3 kgs of fresh seafood per day! She is still on antibiotics and is doing fine. The volunteers are very excited, they have all worked so hard to nurse her back to health.
We are in the process of purchasing a satellite tracker so when we release her, we will be able to see where she goes. The information that we will gather from the tracker will help us to conserve her species.
Dolly’s tracker is going to cost us a lot of money. You can donate to Australian Seabird Rescue on the home page or you can go to givenow.com.au and donate to us through this newly launched crowdfunding campaign specifically to raise money for Dolly’s tracker. Please keep visiting this page as it is being developed as you will find new information about us regularly from now on. Thanks for your support!
