I went for a drive along the waterfront this morning to see if the turtle was still there. There was no sign of it. I would only hope that it was rescued, or perhaps was able to swim to safetly with the high tide last night.
It is not common to see these creatures on the beach here - though many do live in the bay.
At this time of year the female turtle will nest, but usually it is further north - on some of the huge sand islands, or beaches around Bundaberg.
I hope the turtle is OK.
