About the event

We need a big crowd of people to fill our local artist Geoff Ginn's creation of a giant turtle on the beach. There will be an outline drawn in the sand filled with people, and drone pilots taking lots of photos to celebrate the start of this year's nesting season. If all goes well we may make this an annual event.

To take part, make sure you arrive well before 1pm as we need to do this at low tide, which will be around 1:08pm. Please wear a turtle-coloured shirt/top (greens, browns, earthy tones) if you have one.

Important: please register to get reminders nearer the time, and updates if anything changes.

Alternative date: if the weather is too bad on 4th December, we will postpone to 18th December.

The BIEPA market stall will be there with T-shirts and turtle-related goodies to buy. If you are a BIEPA member, please consider volunteering to come early to help set things up, and to stay to help clear up afterwards; contact Geoff Ginn on 0421 724 441 if you can help.

We'll publish photos from the event in papers and social media to raise awareness of the vulnerability of the mother turtles, their nests in the dunes, and their little hatchlings as they they quietly go about their annual summer breeding ritual along Woorim Beach from November through to April.

We can all help to save these ancient mariners from extinction by protecting them during this critical time, and by supporting our dedicated Bribie Island Turtle Trackers who diligently monitor nest sites and hatchings at all hours and in all weather.
