Turtle Rehabilitation Centre Turtle Rehabilitation Centre

In conjunction with the Gladstone Ports Corporation, GAWB operates a Turtle Rehabilitation Centre at its Fish Hatchery on Lord Street.  The GAWB Fish Hatchery provides an ideal mainland location for such a facility, with ready access to sea water, much of the necesssary basic infrastructure is already in place and the staff are trained in the car for marine animals.

If you find an injured marine animal call 1300 ANIMAL.

During 2015/16 the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre cared for 10 marine animals including three different species of turtle (Green, Loggerhead and Hawksbill) and a juvenile Indo Pacific Bottlehose dolphin.
