Beach Clean with TurtleWatch GC @ Palm Beach

January 18, 2023 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

A TurtleWatch Beach Clean by Watergum and Sea World sponsored by Landcare Australia, Billabong and Boardriders.

Join TurtleWatch for a Beach Clean at various local beaches this turtle season!

From November through to March, TurtleWatch Gold Coast in collaboration with Watergum and Sea World will be visiting beaches along the Gold Coast to spread awareness about turtle activity. These beach cleans ups will aim to educate local communities on the importance of marine turtles, their presence on the Gold Coast, and what we can do to help!

Guided turtles walks will run simultaneously whilst rubbish is removed from turtle nesting habitats. As we collect rubbish, a TurtleWatch representative will run through how to conduct TurtleWalk so attendees can conduct their own independently and contribute to turtle data!

The TurtleWalk will go through the following components:

  • General turtle education
  • Turtle ID and patterns
  • How to monitor turtle activity to collect data
  • Turtle First Aid
  • TurtleWatch Data entry

This event is a great way to improve your turtle knowledge as well as the techniques used to monitor turtle activity here on the Gold Coast.

Please register to receive event details. Please cancel if you are not able to join us so we can give your spot to someone else.

This program is funded by City of Gold Coast, Landcare Australia, Billabong and Boardriders.
