Australian Marine Wildlife Research & Rescue Organisation (AMWRRO), providing a rescue and rehabilitation service for our incredibly unique Australian marine wildlife species.Found an injured marine animal?
Jenelle the Green Turtle is no longer a floater!
After a three weeks of care Jenelle has turned a corner and is now happily able to sit on the bottom of be pond and swim around as oppose to bobbing on the surface like a cork. She has also developed a fantastic appetite for squid and octopus.
AMWRRO is working closely with Sea World in Queensland where she will be transported to in the near future to continue her road to recovery and then released back to the open seas.
Special thanks to our AMWRRO Crew for all their assistance in her rehabilitation; another fantastic success story!
AMWRRO would like to welcome our latest sponsor Hills Sustainable Gardens (HSG) to the AMWRRO Team and thank the company Directors Wade and Sam for dedicating time and effort into the unique AMWRRO Wetland Facilities.
As unique as the AMWRRO Rehabilitation Facilities are, our wetland concept was designed to incorporating a natural wetland facility to those in care animals, however this design takes a lot of time and energy to maintain.
