Turtle Fest

Melbourne Aquarium Puts Turtles In The Spotlight!

 

From 13 May – 2 June, Melbourne Aquarium is hosting Turtle Fest!

 

Come and help us celebrate Turtle Fest with fun and interactive games, special turtle talks, activity booklets, PLUS take Tyler’s Quiz Trail and discover fun turtle facts while exploring the aquarium!

 

With six out of seven marine turtles listed as endangered and 43 per cent of the world’s freshwater turtles listed as threatened, Turtle Fest aims to raise awareness about turtle conservation issues and help educate visitors on how we can keep turtles in the wild safe and healthy.

 

Turtle Fest will also raise funds for the SEA LIFE Conservation Fund, which is dedicated to conserving turtles and their marine and freshwater environments, by funding research and educational projects that will help protect and restore threatened species and habitats.

 

Learn about Melbourne Aquarium’s successful Rescue and Rehabilitation Program and find out how you can do your bit to help protect turtles for future generations to come.
