What can YOU do?
Keep off sand dunes - these are highly sensitive areas and provide critical habitat for nesting turtles.
Dispose of plastics and unwanted fishing gear responsibly.
Avoid shining bright lights on the beach at night during turtle nesting season between November and April. For residents who live adjacent to beaches, consider switching off unnecessary lights and close your curtains and blinds from 7:30 PM.
When operating vessels, reduce speeds in estuaries, sandy straights and shallow inshore areas, and adhere to go slow areas for turtles and dugong.
Join a local TurtleCare goup. They provide community members with the opportunity to participate in hands-on conservation and restoration activities.
