This year you can help raise vital funds for Marine Turtle rescue and rehabilitation at our wildlife hospital and support Taronga’s initiatives to reduce plastic waste in our oceans.
At Taronga’s Wildlife Hospital, we treat roughly 40 turtles every year. Turtles often mistake people’s rubbish for food such as jellyfish, swallowing plastic bags, balloons and fishing gear – hook, line and sinker - often with fatal consequences. Taronga has made a commitment to the conservation of marine turtles – they play a vital role in maintaining healthy coral reefs and seagrass beds and help to balance food webs.
Please join us in the Sun Run and Cole Classic – Run wild, swim free and support Marine Turtles!
