Members of the public of all ages are invited to attend our school holiday tours operating on weekdays, up until Friday October 2, at 10am.
Our Wildlifelink Sanctuary’s gardens are looking lovely with the recent rain we have received and guests are welcome to take a stroll around and enjoy the environment before or after the tour. We have a few birds currently nesting on the property and we can show you where they are.
The one-hour educational talk and tour involves a visit to our turtle hospital where we explain the human induced problems the sea turtles face in the ocean that can make them sick. We show guests how we treat the sick sea turtles and they can get up close and personal and watch the sea turtles being fed.
We also explain how we catch injured birds and show a slide show of some of the animals that have been in care over the past 12 months.
The cost of the tour is $5 per person.
Currently we have three critically endangered Hawksbill turtles and one green sea turtle in the turtle hospital.
We also have two different species of freshwater turtle where guests can see the difference between sea turtles and freshwater species.
