Once the rehabilitation is complete and the turtles are nursed back to health, they will be fit for release back into their natural habitat in the wild.

Turtle rescue is a great family activity for half term and beyond, teaching children about conservation and caring for animals, as well as a fun, interactive way to discover the importance of responsibility.
