Oz Whale Watching’s Sponsor Turtle Making Great Progress

Advanced Ecotourism certified Operator Oz Whale Watching, based in Sydney Harbour, are delighted to report on the positive progress of ‘Jude’ their sponsored green turtle whom they named during 2014.

‘Jude’ is a patient at Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre having been found stranded in Cape Tribulation and suffering starvation. Initially admitted to the Cairns Turtle Intensive Care Centre, ‘Jude’ has gained strength enabling his transfer to the Fitzroy Island Rehabilitation Centre facility. Jude will now undergo a rehabilitation period to achieve optimum weight before being released back into the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Oz Whale Watching will provide updates of Jude’s journey on their website and on their Facebook page.

Tourism Operators and their guests are encouraged to become involved and directly contribute to action to conserve marine turtles via sponsorship of a turtle patient.

For information contact Fiona Sleight at Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre via their website  or their Facebook page.
