Stewards of the natural world of the Cooloola Coast
New Year Resolutions
Drive slowly & carefully on the beach.
Take the road when the tide is high or wait so you don't compact turtle nests.
Stay off the dunes, turtles and birds nest there & grass stops the sand eroding.
Dogs on a leash protect nests of birds who have flown from the other side of the world to nest safely here.
UPDATE (7 Feb 2020):
First nest hatching - 81 Green Turtles hatched safely 4 Feb 2020.
At least 34 nesting turtle tracks recorded on Rainbow Beach !
Monitoring turtles as they lay and hatch and rescuing stranded turtles.

Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
In keeping with the spirit of reconciliation, Cooloola Coastcare acknowledges the Kabi Kabi (Gubbi Gubbi) and Butchulla people who are the traditional custodians of the land and sea where Cooloola Coastcare operates, and recognise that these have always been places of environmental stewardship. We wish to pay respect to their Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal people continue to play within the Cooloola community.
