Rescue, Rehabilitate & Release

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium's team of experts are on call 24 hours, every day of the year to help rescue marine animals in need.

SEA LIFE's Rescue Centre has the approved permits to rescue marine animals from all of NSW and a dedicated team of experienced curators and aquarists who will rehabilitate and nurse the patients back to health before releasing them back into the wild.

After the closure of Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary in 2018, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium opened the Animal Rescue Centre where the team have rescued, rehabilitated and released many sea turtles and sea snakes since its opening.
