Green Mother Turtle

It was a big night for a giant green turtle last night as she dragged herself back to the ocean after laying up to a hundred eggs in the dunes.

If you see turtle nest activity please contact:

Turtle/Marine Animal Stranding Hotline 130013037 

The great volunteers at Coolum District Coastcare will come and explain what is happening and how they protect and monitor the nests.

Please remember to keep dogs and kids off the dunes at this time of year until after Easter to give these lovely creature a chance to live.

    What a wonderful creature and how privileged are we that she chose to have her family here!
