Found a Turtle?

Found a Turtle?

The DTRP team are available 365 days a year, seven days a week between 8am and 6pm and you can contact us by calling +971 4 3017198, if there is no answer (as we are busy saving sea turtles) then please leave a message and/or e-mail leaving your contact information and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

In the meantime, keep the turtle comfortable and in shallow freshwater at about 26°C so the turtle can easily lift its head to breathe and wait for the DTRP team to get back to you.

Our meeting point for turtles is located at the drop off to Wild Wadi water park (see map below). Please make sure you have arranged a meeting time and a member of the DTRP team knows you are coming as other colleagues are unable to accept the turtle.

Please note that we are a specialist sea turtle rehabilitation project and we cannot help with any enquiries or offer advice relating to pets such as freshwater terrapins or land tortoises.
