Climate change: Top 10 tips to reduce carbon footprint revealed

Saturday 23rd May is the day to remember our local endangered marine turtle populations that live in Moreton Bay Marine Park and those that travel down from the Great Barrier Reef to nest on our Ocean Beach dunes each year.  We also hope you will celebrate the freshwater turtles that live in our lagoons, and freshwater waterways. 
There are seven species of marine turtles in the world’s oceans.  Leatherback, Kemps Ridley, Olive Ridley, Green, Loggerhead, Hawksbill, Flatback.
Australia hosts all except the Kemps Ridley.  The Flatback is iconic to Australia.
However, all marine turtles are listed as: either threatened, endangered or critically endangered.
The Bribie Island Turtle Trackers monitor the endangered loggerhead turtle nesting season from November through April.  The information they collect is recorded on the Queensland Government’s Department of Environment and Science research data base.

BIEPA is indebted to our First Nations peoples who continue to share their wisdom in how they have been Caring for Country – Our Special Habitat and it’s Residents – for Millennia.
