The Ballarat Wildlife Park will be part of a program to save Manning River turtles.

The park has been given a grant to build a breeding facility for the species, which is critically endangered following the last year’s bushfires.

Manager JULIA LEONARD says it’s not the only species of turtle the park has welcomed.

"We've also got little baby bell's turtles which are also endangered species," she said.
