We helped host the Two Oceans Aquarium Turtle Road Trip public information event at Station 30 Agulhas this morning and they will be at our rescue base in Plett on 7th March 18h00. Check out their page to find out more https://goo.gl/ZQu6fW 'Every year, thousands of loggerhead and leatherback turtles hatch on the beaches of northern KwaZulu-Natal. They head to sea and are carried southward by the warm Agulhas Current. Facing high levels of predation and strong currents, many hatchlings find themselves off the Cape's south coast - stunned by the cold, weak and often injured. Many inevitably wash up and are stranded on our beaches.Without help, these stranded hatchlings have no chance of survival.The Two Oceans Aquarium conservation team has a plan: To undertake a 'Turtle Road Trip' to visit the locals and communities , from Muizenberg to Plettenberg Bay, most likely to find these stranded turtles, to educate them and equip their communities with network points that are able to care for these hatchlings and to transport them to the Aquarium's turtle rescue, rehab and release centre.'
