A turtle surprise!

The Bay never fails to delight, and World Wildlife Day this year was no exception.

Treated to a spectacular sighting of the rarely seen and endangered Leatherback Turtle – the largest sea turtle in the world! Like most of us they prefer to reside in the tropics, so what was he doing in the waters of Port Phillip?

 

Why, feasting on an abundant jelly fish patch, often found in the cooler waters off the coast of southern Australia. Weighing in at up to 500kgs and 2metres long, they can put away up to 100kilograms of jellyfish in a day – just another day at the office.

No two days are ever the same for us in our ‘office’.
