Migration is a remarkable thing. For our native sea-turtles, Queensland beaches are a springboard from which their young begin a massive oceanic adventure. But with our modern-day use of coastal lands and waters, there is mounting pressure on these tiny voyagers. One of the biggest threats comes from predation of sea-turtle nests on land. So, in 2014, the Nest to Ocean Program was created to fund, support, and empower communities across Queensland to confront this threat head-on and give both hatchlings, and their species, a fighting chance at survival. This is the story of the Loggerhead Sea-turtle.
