TurtleCare is made up of local volunteers that spend their summer protecting Marine Turtle nesting from Caloundra to Point Cartright.
If tracks are located, the volunteers protect the nest with fox predation mesh. Approximately 2 - 3 months later, the volunteers monitor the nest for the hatchlings to naturally emerge.
Volunteers collect vital information on the nests and we submit this data to the Queensland Turtle Conservation Project.
