“The best part of the program was walking on an isolated beach at sunrise while listening to the peaceful sounds of the waves crashing, and of course being lucky enough to watch the turtles return to the sea.”

“The Ningaloo Turtle Program was an unforgettable experience! It is extremely enlightening every time you see a turtle return to the ocean but even better when you help save a stranded turtle.”

“Walking beautiful beaches at sunrise with the added excitement of deciphering turtle activity from the night before, the wonder of coming across turtle tracks, turtle nests and sometimes turtles themselves, helping to shepherd baby turtles safely to the water, rescuing exhausted stranded turtles, a refreshing swim at the end of the walk, the camaraderie of the volunteers on the bus journey home, excitedly swapping turtle stories and getting to know these people of all ages and nationalities each year has me eagerly anticipating another turtle season.”

“7 years on and still I love waking up to go to a secluded beach at sunrise to spend quality time with turtles, hope I’m still doing it in another 7 years”.
