AMWRRO’s getting “Summer Set”

Have you got free time on your hands, love marine wildlife, are fit and active and would like to be a part of a specialist team that save hundreds of lives each year? Become a hands on volunteer with AMWRRO today.

AMWRRO is getting “Set for Summer” and wanting to increase our specialist team of hands on volunteers to 50 before the heat of summer sets in.

If you carry a current drivers licence and can travel to Port Adelaide twice a month (minimum twice a month) and want to interact with our incredibly unique marine wildlife species – become a member of AMWRRO today and request a Volunteer Application form to get the ball rolling today.

All training is provided in house and is hands on. No previous wildlife experience required (in fact this is preferred) and boat licences are not a requirement.

AMWRRO welcomes our latest sponsor 7 News


For several years AMWRRO has worked closely with the fantastic team at 7 News and recently AMWRRO has secured a new sponsorship arrangement that will help promote the great work AMWRRO continues to perform throughout the community for our marine wildlife.  Special thanks to all the reporters, chief of staff and production teams for all their support and great Community Service Announcement that is now aired on Channel 7.   AMWRRO will be updating the team at 7 News Adelaide on new cases and will provide exclusive coverage to 7 News on a regular basis.




Two Sea Turtles Ready for Release

Our two special turtles have been transferred to the east coast for release with special thanks to the great team at Australian Seabird Rescue for their assistance in collecting the turtles from the Coolangatta airport yesterday and transporting them by road to the Australian Seabird Rescue facility in Ballina. The Green Turtle named Jenelle and Loggerhead Turtles named Alicia were rescue in South Australian waters several months ago and are now in Ballina (Northern NSW) where they will be flipper tagged and released within the next few days.  Flippers crossed they do not eat plastic again and live a long healthy life.  Special thanks to the AMWRRO Crew for all their hard work over the past seven – nine months of intensive care.  For more information about becoming a volunteer, please go to the “how to help” tab on the AMWRRO website.
