EARLY EVERY morning from November 1st to February 28, small teams of community volunteers and visitors patrol six kilometres of Cable Beach looking for signs of overnight turtle activity.
Three teams patrol two kilometres each, recording new nests or, later in the season, details of hatched nests. If you are lucky you might even see a little hatchling or two making its way into the ocean at the start of a journey that will, 20 or 30 years from now, bring it back to these shores to start the process again. Full training and equipment is provided.
