Adopt a hatchling
It costs us about R6 000 per to rehabilitate the average stranded turtle – but few of the rescued hatchlings that reach us are “average”. From dehydration to broken shells and picky eaters to energetic rascals, it takes a passionate and dedicated team to provide each turtle with the individual care and treatment it needs to be nursed back to health.
To help cover the expense of this critical care, we are opening up the opportunity for members of the public to adopt a turtle by paying for its rehabilitation – and in so doing, helping us continue our turtle conservation work. The adoption fee helps us cover the extensive medical care and compassion “spent” on each and every individual turtle. In return, adopters get to name their chosen hatchling, will receive a unique certificate of adoption, will receive monthly updates on the rehabilitation progress of their chosen hatchling, and will know that they’ve directly contributed to helping this little member of an endangered species have a second chance at life!
