Community members from near and far descended on Lindenow South to celebrate turtles!

Did you know that many of Australia’s freshwater turtles are under serious threat due to fox predation and human activities?

Greening Australia and Turtles Australia know just how important these critters are to our wetlands and waterways and were keen to share their knowledge, particularly how to identify Eastern long neck turtles and use nest protection kits. With the Local Aboriginal Woman dancers, the Brabulung Warriors and the team from Bug Blitz on hand, a good day was had by all.

This event was funded by the State Governments Our Catchment, Our Communities initiative.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout East Gippsland and pay our respects to them, their culture and their Elders past, present and future.
