Brodie was found on Whitehaven Beach on 29th May 2016, and thanks to Cruise Whitsundays he was transferred to WTRC. It seems as though he has been hit by a boat propeller as he has some sever lacerations to his carapace and his front right flipper has been severed off. Brodie was transported to Cairns Turtle Rehab Centre, on the 12th July 2017 Brodie successfully underwent six long hours of difficult bone surgery and removal of a granuloma from his right flipper which had been badly damaged. We can’t thank Jennie Gilbert and Marlin Coast Veterinary Centre enough for their amazing work. It would not have been possible without the help of the Marine Park Rangers who spent an hour and half with a crane gently getting him out of his tank and for the dedicated volunteers who stood by Brodie’s side throughout the whole procedure. Jennie has a fantastic team up in Cairns, Brodie is such a lucky turtle and is in the best possible hands. Brodie made a full recovery and was transported back to WTRC on 22nd May 2018. Brodie will be released as soon as possible, and wearing his fancy GPS tracker so the team at Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre will be able to track his movements.
