Mary River Turtle Public Fund

Jun 14, 2016

Mary_River_Turtle_hatchling.jpgThe 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.
