Mary River Turtles were first formally discovered in 1994, and eluded discovery in their natural environment for nearly 30 years. There has been a dramatic decrease in their population due to low reproduction rates and an increase of depredation on nests. Let’s all hope that these beautiful turtles survive.

      1. Things are going OK here there has been an escalation in cases in Auckland but pretty much just like everywhere else, but it just came later to New Zealand. The streets are eerily quiet but that makes it easier to get out on the ebike which is one positive from it. How are you doing over in the UK, big hugs and stay safe 🤗😎
