On Tuesday students visited Mon Repos Turtle Centre. Students learnt about the purpose of the Mon Repos turtle rookery in helping to protect these wonderful sea creatures. Some interesting facts the students brought back were turtles return to the same beach to lay their eggs in the future and the temperature determines the gender of the hatchling. We discovered how lights affect turtles when they are wanting to lay and inspected some nest protectors amongst the sand dunes. We even saw some tiny turtles tracks from the night before. It was a fantastic excursion!
