The TurtleWatch datasheet is simple and easy to fill in and will help us enormously in our quest to understand sea turtles and monitor the health of vital nesting habitat.
To complete it, go to the TurtleWatch webpage: http://watergum.org/turtlewatch/
Scroll down to find the TurtleWatch Walkers data tab where you can log your date and also look at everyone else’s data.
Simply fill in the prompts and submit!
If you find sea turtles, tracks or nesting activity, take lots of photos and call the Turtle Watch coordinators ASAP.
Remember: Not finding any activity is important data too so please record all turtle watch walks on our online datasheet.
We are also collecting information that might help us to understand why turtles are nesting in certain areas. Please report potential impacts on the beaches such as significant erosion, littering, vandalism of native dune vegetation and feral animals. If you see interesting native wildlife while out walking please record it on your datasheet, take photos and feel free to share on the TurtleWatch Facebook Group!
Congratulations, you have almost completed your online induction! Good luck in the final quiz!
