Join us online for the launch of Australia’s largest community conservation program ‘1 Million Turtles’.

Led by Dr James Van Dyke from La Trobe University Albury-Wodonga and Associate Professor Ricky Spencer from Western Sydney University, the project aims to use Citizen Science to ensure the continued existence of freshwater turtle populations.

The project will offer a number of ways for the community to get involved in turtle conservation including the ‘Turtles in the Classroom’ program, the creation of protected islands and nesting grounds around local wetlands, urban parks and golf courses and a variety of other innovative and exciting initiatives.

Hear from guest speakers Tim Faulkner from Australian Reptile Park and Jason Wilson form the Commonwealth Environmental Water Group, along with the project leads.

6.30pm Monday 1 November, register here.
