Carmichael Ford has been a proud partner of the Reef HQ turtle hospital since 2009, and recently donated the third turtle hospital ambulance Ford Ranger.

The Reef HQ Aquarium turtle hospital provides a dedicated facility where sick and injured marine turtles can be cared for and rehabilitated. The hospital operates under and promotes the C.A.R.E (Conserve. Act. Rehabilitate. Educate) philosophy playing a key role in raising community awareness in relation to threatened species and encouraging behavioural change that contributes to nature conservation.

Marine Turtles are long-lived, slow growing and late maturing. Despite protection marine turtles face a number of threats:

  • Fishing nets, lines and hooks - Bring all your fishing tackle home.
  • Boat Strikes - Go slow for those below and keep an eye out for turtles.
  • Litter - Turtles and other sea creatures mistake it for food.
  • Plastic Bags - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
