Baby turtle found amongst barges saved by boatie 24 Jan 2013

UPDATE: A baby turtle named Terrin who was found in the Gladstone marina has now been released from the Qouin Island Turtle Rehabilitation Centre by founder Bob McKosker.

Terrin was perfectly fit and healthy according to volunteer and communications co-ordinator Amanda McCosker, who said the release was timed with an outgoing tide.

EARLIER: A baby turtle was found among the barges at the Gladstone Marina earlier this week.

He was scooped up by a boatie named Terrin and named after him.

He has been taken to the Quoin Island Turtle Rehabilitation Centre.

Volunteer and Communications Coordinator Amanda McCosker said it was unusual to see baby turtles in the Gladstone Harbour and Terrin was clearly lost.

"He appears fine, is nice and spritely," she said.

"Unless he starts to show any sign of injury or distress, he will be set off from Quoin Island beach at the next full tide, which gives it the best chance to avoid birds, get out into the ocean and get on with his hopefully long and prosperous life."

If anyone sees an ill, injured or stranded turtle call Quoin Island Turtle Rehabilitation Centre on 0408431304.
