Tiny turtle makes a gigantic recovery after dog attack

GIGANTOR is the latest arrival at the Quoin Island Turtle Facility.

The flatback hatchling was attacked by a dog when he ventured from his nest to the waters edge.

Gigantor suffered an acute eye injury and requires eye drops three times a day.

He is expected to be released back into the sea any day now.

Quoin Island Turtle Rehabilitation Centre is a not-for-profit facility on Quoin Island in the Gladstone Harbour.

The centre urgently seeks volunteers who can commit to a weekly shift on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings.

If you've spotted an injured turtle or are interested in volunteering, phone 4970 0170 or 0408 431 304.
