Volunteer Program for Turtle Tagging

Pendoley held four information and selection nights for over 250 volunteers for the upcoming Turtle Tagging season on Barrow Island and Mundabullangana.

The nights consisted of an information session and some group activities that enabled Pendoley Environmental staff to select appropriate volunteers.  Bec McCracken, Pendoley’s Environmental Scientist and coordinator for the session, said "it takes a lot of organising but it is worth it – without our volunteers the tagging program would not work as well".

The season begins in November and volunteers will be in the field until late January 2012.
