Turtle Information Session

July 20, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Do you want to learn more about our snake-necked turtles and how you can help them?

The City of Canning is excited to be joining forces with Murdoch University and the South West Metropolitan Alliance to participate in the Saving Our Snake Necked Turtle project. Many of the City’s wetlands, including Wilson Wetlands, are home to populations of the snake-necked turtle which are under threat from a combination of predators, such as foxes and ravens, vehicle strikes on our roads and lack of suitable nesting habitat. 

The City has committed to a funding partnership that will provide the Canning community with opportunities to help save the snake-necked turtles. Participants will learn about turtles and hear the latest research, contribute to crucial citizen science using the TurtleSAT app, and get the chance to become a ‘Turtle Tracker’, protecting nesting females and their nests. All of this will help inform future management actions for snake-necked turtles.

Come along to this information night to find out more about turtles, the project and how you can help just by using your smartphone! You will have the opportunity afterwards to register your interest in joining our turtle-y cool group and becoming a ‘Turtle Tracker’ volunteer to help save turtles at a wetland near you.
