Greater Shepparton City Council’s Manager Sustainability and Environment Greg McKenzie encouraged people to come along. “Attendees will discover the variety of freshwater turtles that live in our local waterways, with a rare opportunity to view turtles up close and learn more about the lives of these interesting reptiles.”
“This is a great family friendly school holiday activity where the kids can learn about turtles and have fun at the same time,” said Mr McKenzie.
Turtles Australia focus on the preservation of Australian freshwater turtles through educating the public and conducting research about the endangered Broad Shelled turtle and the threatened Murray short necked turtle which are both found in our local waterways. Learn how to identify turtles, their life history, threats to our local populations, and how we can help to protect these fascinating animals.
