Mary River Turtle Public Fund
Jun 14, 2016
The Mary River turtle is one of the most threatened river turtles in Australia.Since the 1970’s, the population of nesting females at Tiaro has plummeted by 95%. In 2001, a Mary River turtle conservation project was initiated by the local community to help recover the population. The conservation project's aims are:
- to improve recruitment by protecting nests and reducing predation
- to support new research
- to increase awareness of the turtle and its habitat, the Mary River in south east Queensland, Australia.
A public fund has been established to help raise much needed funds for this work to continue. You can make a tax deductible donation to help increase the survival chances of this unique turtle.
