Welcoming Turtles on Our Shore
The NParks team gained invaluable hands-on experience in turtle management from experts and experienced volunteers. For example, the team learnt about the light regime when handling turtles. Collin explained that while lights can be used more liberally with hatchlings, and are used to guide them from the shore to the sea, with nesting turtles, lights can only be shone from the rear when they are in the midst of laying their eggs.
