The Sea Turtle Foundation recently assisted in running two Marine Animal Stranding Training days in collaboration with QPWS, GBRMPA, Reef HQ and the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre.
The days at Townsville and Mission Beach were both a success and it is great to see so many people in the community enthusiastic to learn and assist with marine stranding response. The Townsville group were even lucky enough to see the potential hybrid at Reef HQ! We had an overwhelming interest in the training days and successfully trained over 50 participants. Thank you to everyone who participated in the training days and QPWS, GBRMPA, Reef HQ and Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre for working with Sea Turtle Foundation to make these days a success.
For anyone else who is interested in learning about Marine Animal Stranding Response, QPWS will release online training in June. We will post details on our website when this occurs.
