Hundreds of sick, starving and injured turtles have begun to wash up on our Queensland beaches because marine turtles’ main source of food, seagrass, has been polluted from pesticide run-off, sediment and fresh water.

And if that isn’t bad enough, on top of the polluted seagrass, our beautiful marine turtles are being subjected to another killer, a deforming virus that causes large tumorous lesions.

Everything we do, no matter where we live, can affect our marine life so please change your habits immediately.
