06 Apr FIRST COLLECTION OF MANNING RIVER TURTLES
Aussie Ark staff alongside president Tim Faulkner, collected the first Manning River turtles to begin the development of the insurance population. Additionally, Aussie Ark keepers have also rescued 12 eggs from a nest site that was at imminent risk of predation. The eggs were relocated to the Australian Reptile Park for incubation. Once hatched some of the hatchlings will be the first turtles release back into the wild.
