Endangered turtle rescued from NSW beach 12 Oct 2012

An endangered Hawksbill turtle has been rescued off a northern Sydney beach after it washed up with scars on its head, barely able to move.

Volunteer lifesavers from South Curl Curl found the injured turtle, known as "Curly", on Friday in poor condition and called in expert help.

"(She) will be kept under close observation and care," Manly Sea Life Sanctuary said in a statement.

"The team hopes she will make a steady recovery until ready to be released back into the wild."

Surf Life Saving Sydney Northern Beaches chief Steve McInnes said he was glad he was able to work with the sanctuary "to ensure all living beings, both animals and humans, are protected and cared for".

Curly is undergoing tests as vets attempt to find out why she washed up on the beach and how she came to sustain the injuries that scarred her head.

"Marine turtles are faced with many obstacles including both human-related and natural," Marina Tsamoulos, a vet from the sanctuary said.

The World Conservation Union classifies the Hawksbill as critically endangered, with some estimates of its worldwide population decline put at 80 per cent over recent generations.
