Every day there’s a different group at the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre. In addition to volunteers, like me, who signed up through Oceans 2 Earth, there are local volunteers, veterinary students, and a rotating roster of leaders who offer expertise and supervision. This was the group working at the Centre today, Friday.
In the afternoon I took off on a hike to visit the lighthouse and summit on Fitzroy Island, a roundtrip of about 2 miles with a breathtaking (literally!) ascension to a high point for amazing views. Tomorrow is a day off, and I’ve booked a tour to the Daintree Rainforest and other nearby sites.
