Turtle Rescue, Rehabilitation and Release
The Gulf of Carpentaria has globally significant nesting and foraging grounds for six of the world's marine turtles.
Unfortunately it is also one of the world's 'hot spots' for ghost nets. This results in many turtles, (80% of wildife found), becoming entangled in the nets and in most cases dying as a consequence. The rangers, during their beach patrols, attempt to rescue and in some cases rehabilitate as many as they can.
