The first Australian Marine Turtle bi-annual Symposium will be held in Buderim on the week-end of 14th – 16th September. This exciting event will be hosted by members of Turtle Care Volunteers Qld Inc. and will feature an exciting program showcasing and comparing existing science and management initiatives from all around Australia and New Guinea.

The Conference will cover 2 days. Each day will comprise a keynote address plus 5 or 10 minute community or research presentations. Plus we will present a panel discussion on satellite telemetry and bio-logging.

This is a not to be missed opportunity for the many volunteer groups from all over Australia, working on beaches to protect marine turtles and their habitats, to get together and share their experiences. Anyone wishing to present research, share your community group’s activities or just wanting to attend is invited to contact the organisers for registration information.

The location for the 1st Australian Marine Turtle Symposium is beautiful Buderim, chosen not only because it is in the centre of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and its attractions, but also because we have the opportunity to use a venue that will cater for our conference and provide facilities for camping and self-catering.

This venue, The Sunshine Coast Square Dance Centre in Dixon Road, is managed by members of Turtle Care Volunteers Inc. and we are assured that their support will keep costing as low as possible while still providing first class facilities in a relaxed country atmosphere.
