Four more turtles found dead

FOUR more green turtles were found dead on Capricorn Coast beaches at the weekend.

Two were found on Farnborough Beach, one at Coorooman Creek and another was handed to the Yeppoon Coast Guard.

This is on top of the three that were found dead on Farnborough Beach on Friday by The Bully and a Yeppoon resident.

One large green turtle was alive and rescued. Senior Ranger for the Rosslyn Bay Marine Parks Oliver Lanyon yesterday said the turtle was re-hydrated, soaked in fresh water to get rid of parasites and was released into Kinka Creek for rehabilitation.

He said despite suffering from a boat strike,  it had a good chance of recovery.
