Every morning in Cairns Australia, a group gathers at the Marina, for a special journey. They’re a mixed bunch from all over, but have one thing in common. These people, are turtle addicts. And today, they’re headed to rehab. Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre is on tropical Fitzroy Island. It’s staffed by around 150 volunteers, who work tirelessly, to save sick and injured turtles found in the waters of Great Barrier Reef. Turtley Addicted is an island of hope in what can often seem a sea of sadness.
