Fourty Five students from local primary school at Babalaza were given a introduction to sea turtles presentation. Children were quizzed on talk content and split in to groups to see which group could remember the most facts from the presentation. Key emphasis was made unique facts of the turtles biology and behavior to help inspire stewardship of our local nesting sea turtles.
