As discussed in the ‘Turtle Basics’ section, there are two species of turtles known to nest in the Gold Coast region; Green and Loggerhead Turtles. Each species leaves different tracks. Please take a photo of any tracks you see and send them to us for ID. In order to build up your own skills, familiarise yourself with the characteristics displayed in the below images so you can learn to identify track yourself.
After completing this online induction we do not expect you to be an expert at turtle track identification so please always ensure you take a photo and send it through to email@example.com. If you are interested in learning more we will give more detailed training in our face-to-face workshops.
