The Story of Bob The Turtle | WWF-Australia

Initially, we actually weren’t sure if Bob was going to make it. He wasn’t eating – definitely not the way he was supposed to be. It was only when Bob finally passed a whole lot of plastic that we realised what the issue had been. Quite a few seperate pieces of single-use plastic bags, also […]

The Kimberley is a really unique and interesting place. We’re really lucky that we’ve not seen any species extinctions in this region, however with the toads approaching fast, a lot of our native animals are facing a huge threat. One creek we walked up, we found like… 20 dead goannas, and even dead snakes. It’s […]

So it’s projects like these and many others that are occurring across the globe that are trying to combat this issue to reduce sand temperatures so we can produce multiple […]

😎 Cool News For Turtles! 🐢 | WWF-Australia

By Stevie Adams / in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , /

Hatchlings that are experiencing high nest temperatures will tend to perform much worse. They are lethargic, they crawl really slow and they can’t flip themselves over or anything like that. When it comes down to trying to run down the beach and get into the water, if they aren’t able to do that fast enough […]
