Volunteers required.  Turtles Australia Inc. lead by Graham Stockfeld is heading to Gunbower Island again this season for “turtle spotting” and nest protection work.  This work is vital for the conservation of Vic. three species of freshwater turtles. One of the biggest threats to our turtle populations in Vic. is the predation of nest sites by foxes.  The “turtle team” of which you are invited to join, will look for fresh nest sites and  protect these nests. If you are interested in volunteering for a day or more,  go to the Turtles Australia website  http://www.turtlesaustralia.org.au/ , look under the sidebar heading: Events and Fieldwork. All information required is listed there as well as registration for the event.  Dates inclusive: Nov 1st – 12th, Gunbower Island.
