About Team Turtle CQ:
TTCQ was established in 2015 by FBA to gain a greater understanding of marine turtle nesting in central Queensland. Volunteers actively walk CQ beaches from October to March each year to collect data. This data is provided to the QLD Turtle Conservation Program which has 50 years of turtle monitoring data and supports
state-wide conservation efforts.
