Turtle Habitat Islands Construction

Tuesday, 14 May @ 8:00 am2:00 pm

Free

Get involved in a project to construct a habitat island for turtles in Glenbrook Lagoon.

This joint project involves Bushcare, Council and the University of Western Sydney, and is funded by a small grant from the Premier’s Office.

The turtle population Australia-wide is ageing and declining, with few young recruits, thanks to predation on eggs and hatchlings.

Several species of freshwater turtle live in Glenbrook Lagoon, and they need safe nesting habitat. A floating turtle habitat island will be constructed for them.

The construction session will start at 8 am and run until probably 1 – 2 pm. Participants may come and go as they choose. Bring sturdy footwear, a hat, some snack food and drink. Gumboots may be useful too. Bushcare volunteers are welcome to attend.

Please RSVP if you are coming by clicking on the link below.

For further information on the workshop, contact Nathan Summers, Bushcare Officer on nsummers@bmcc.nsw.gov.au or phone 4780 5623 (leave a message). Nathan works part time so it may take a few days to reply to messages.
