Turtle Rescue Mission
When purchasing WWF clothing and accessories from Factorie stores around Australia, 20% of net proceeds go to the Turtle Rescue Mission.
Thanks to Factorie customers’ support, WWF was able to purchase a research boat to assist Traditional Owner rangers in tagging and tracking turtles in the Great Barrier Reef.
WWF aims to significantly reduce the threats to marine turtles through the Turtle Rescue Mission conservation project.
Funds raised will go towards a Traditional Owner ranger program to train groups in the principles of turtle research, tagging and monitoring.
- Traditional Owner ranger patrols to tackle illegal hunting
- Purchasing and developing a satellite tracking system to better understand turtle migratory patterns, where their habitats are located and the routes travelled between nesting and feeding habitats.
