Afternoon Nesting

Monday 25 November 2013

Each year in the peak of the Port Hedland flatback turtle nesting season, female turtles will come up onto Cemetery Beach from mid afternoon to early evening to lay their eggs! 

This event is a great opportunity to bring the family down for an afternoon picnic and get a few pictures of the turtles (with no flash!) and just enjoy the process in broad daylight!

As it is the town beach in Port Hedland, we do recommend closed in footwear and plenty of water. 

There will be lots of Care for Hedland staff and volunteers around during the events to help with any questions or queries!
