Australian Seabird Rescue is a local not for profit marine wildlife rescue organisation that has been operating for over 20 years. We rescue pelicans, seabirds, shorebirds and sea turtles and other marine wildlife.
We are based in Ballina at the Wildlifelink Sanctuary, 264 North Creek Rd.
From Monday June 29 to Friday July 10 we run tours of our sanctuary at 10am on weekdays.
The tours involve us talking about all of the great work that we do. We show a video and then take the guests out to see our sea turtle nest display. Then we head out to the Sea Turtle Hospital and show guests how we treat the sea turtles and the reasons why they end up stranded on the beaches. We also offer suggestions on what you can do to make a difference to help protect the ocean and its wildlife.
The tour is enjoyable for all age groups and runs for one hour. The cost is $5 per person.
The money we raise from the tours helps us to look after the animals in care.
There is no need to book for the tours, just come along at 10am on weekdays.
