It has been a very busy few days for the rescue & rehabilitation team at Dolphin Marine Magic along with the local rangers from NPWS.
3 x Green Sea Turtles from areas in Station Creek, Woolgoolga Beach & Emerald Beach PLUS a Hawksbill Turtle from Sandy Beach have all come into care.
The turtle pictured was entangled in a fishing bouy with blue nylon rope, NPWS and a local man removed the rope prior to giving it to DMM.
It is a decent size specimen but unfortunately due to the entanglement it’s front right flipper has been amputated and the inner left flipper is cut as
All four turtles will be closely monitored with the hope of releasing them back to the beaches listed above in the coming month.
