Great Barrier Reef
Turtle

Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre (CTRC) is a voluntary non-profit organisation dedicated to the rehabilitation of sick and injured turtles. The Cairns Convention Centre is a supporter of the CTRC and funds the rehabilitation of a turtle every year. The Great Barrier Reef is home to six of the world’s seven species of marine turtles. A number of these are seriously threatened by a diverse range of natural and, more significantly, human induced factors. The rehabilitation facilities are located on Fitzroy Island and James Cook University.
