Angels wanted: support us and help to Keep Gnaraloo Wild
Since 2008, we have run a valuable scientific monitoring program to help protect the endangered loggerhead turtles on the remote beaches at Gnaraloo. Our aim is to preserve this pristine wilderness and its precious marine ecosystem for the creatures that depend on it, as well as future generations. With so many of the world’s reefs under threat, our work is more vital than ever before. We want you, your children and your grandchildren to experience the wonder of swimming with sea turtles. To do so, we need your help.
If you would like to become a supporter of the Gnaraloo Wilderness Foundation, we’d love to hear from you!
Could your business or family help us protect sea turtles?
We need to equip our scientists to undertake our sea turtle research and conservation programs and our community education program. We are seeking your support in the form of direct funding or product donation (new or second-hand) to achieve our objectives. Perhaps you have a product or equipment, that we could use? If you can provide any of this equipment, your help will be gratefully received! Check out our list below for needed items.
