Climate Reality Project UK & European Branches, 5 December, 15:00 UTC
In this presentation, you will learn the extremely interesting in and outs of turtle behaviour and nesting activity at Ningaloo. Chloe spent six months as a volunteer with the Ningaloo Turtle Program, a conservation program dedicated to better understanding and conserving sea turtles along the Ningaloo Coast. You will also hear how the warmer world we live in, marine heat waves, plastic, marine debris and ocean health are affecting the welfare and population numbers of these beautiful species. While Ningaloo is one place in a remote part of Australia, we all share one ocean and one planet. This story is a wonderful example of this and why we must all act together to conserve and protect the planet's biodiversity. And of course, no turtle presentation is complete without some footage of hatchlings emerging from their nest.
