Australia is lucky enough to support the largest remaining green and hawksbill turtle breeding populations in the world, off the northern Great Barrier Reef.
But every day, turtles are threatened by pollution, lose their nesting beaches to coastal developments, face accidental capture by commercial fishing, and are traded illegally for their shells.
There’s also the deadly legacy left by plastic, with 8 million tonnes that enter our oceans every year, choking and smothering turtles and other sea creatures.
Adopting a turtle today will protect this vulnerable species by helping to repopulate and restore their watery habitats for generations to come. Your generosity will be a symbol of your support for conversation and animal advocacy, ensuring our magnificent turtles remain in our waters forever.
And for every turtle you assist, you'll also help other marine life as well as teaching younger generations about the importance of conservation.
By promoting sustainable practices, to reduce the risks of commercial nets.
Rebuilding turtles’ homes to conserve some of the planet’s richest, most diverse life.
Advocating for single-use plastics to be phased out by our governments.
Into agricultural and industrial chemicals which could be negatively impacting on the health of turtles.
When you adopt a turtle, we want you to join them on their journey to a safer future.
Your special adoption gift pack includes a cuddly turtle plush toy, fact book, adoption certificate, Living Planet magazine and WWF sticker.
You’ll also receive regular updates on how your generous donations are helping to conserve and protect our oceans and the turtles that live there.
A turtle adoption is the perfect gift for any animal lover as well as a great way to inspire friends, family and loved ones to care for nature as much as you do.
We can send this gift pack to you or directly to your gift recipient. For last-minute gifts, you can print a personalised adoption certificate or email it directly to your gift recipient.
