Couple love the turtles

FOR Bruce and Glenda Gill, life could not get any better than spending a night on the beach watching the turtles come in to lay their eggs or the hatchlings race toward the shoreline.

The Bargara couple are entering their fifth year as volunteers at the Mon Repos Conservation Park.

“We just love coming down here to help the rangers and it is something that we can do quite easily,” she said.

The turtle rookery is searching for about 12 more volunteers to help out with the upcoming turtle season.

Mon Repos Conservation Park ranger-in-charge Cathy Gatley said the nightly tours ran with the help of about 40 volunteers.

For more information on volunteering, call a Mon Repos ranger on 4159 1652 or 4151 9500.
