Bush Rangers help release turtles

On Tuesday 14 June, Year 10 Bush Ranger students had the opportunity to help release Oblong Turtle hatchlings into the local Atwell area. These turtle hatchlings were rescued as eggs in November 2021 and have been in incubation and care since then with local residents – Pearl and Bob.

Pearl and Bob, along with the Turtle Oblonga Rescue and Rehab Network (TORRN), look after and rehabilitate local Oblong Turtles that find themselves in harmful and dangerous situations.

Students also had the opportunity to conduct some other volunteer work at another site during the session. Thank you to Pearl and Bob for this awesome opportunity!
