#005 Turtles at Mon Repos & Platypi at Eungella National Park with myself Vet Chloë

And on today’s podcast, after having traveled from Byron Bay to now Airlie Beach I’ll be reporting on two places I explored that are significant to wildlife. The first is Mon Repos Conservation Park which supports the largest concentration of nesting sea turtles on the eastern Australian mainland and is the most significant loggerhead sea turtle nesting population in the South Pacific region. The second in Eungella National Park, the longest continual stretch of sub-tropical rainforest in Australia and home to the elusive and shy platypus.

    “Massive imperfect action” love it……..Learnt a lot about this most multi faceted animal, the platypus. You just could not make it up!
    Great to have a recap on the various ‘endangered’ distinctions. I saw the logger head turtles come ashore to lay their eggs on the Malaysian east coast as a child and I still count it as one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Everyone should experience this. Just brings home the fact that there are natural forces afoot much greater than egotistical Man. Looking forward to next week’s podcast…it is going to be epic. Keep up the excellent work.

    So good to learn about the marine life and the platypus. I know sea turtles do think plastic bags floating in the ocean are food and it is heartbreaking. We all need to be made aware! Thanks for raising awareness, Chloe! 🙂
