Are you intrigued by the turtles who continuously return to the Sunshine Coast? Don’t miss Kate Hofmeister who is the co-ordinator of TurtleCare Sunshine Coast, a large citizen science program that delivers important conservation and research on a breeding population of critically endangered loggerhead turtles. This program runs in partnership with the State Government’s Queensland Turtle Conservation Project, where Kate was previously a Senior Scientist. She was also Queensland Marine Stranding Coordinator during the 2011 extreme weather mass stranding event.
At Friday Environment Forum at Noosa Parks Association on July 23rd, Kate will share her expertise in TurtleCare’s conservation and research of loggerhead turtles and their nesting behaviours on the Sunshine Coast. Learn about these amazing ancient mariners and how you can contribute to their conservation.
