Whitsundays Green Sea Turtles
The Whitsundays is home to an abundance of the popular Green Sea Turtles. Made famous after an appearance on the movie “Finding Nemo’, turtles are on all travellers ‘must see’ list when in Australia – and there is no better place than in the Whitsundays.
The protected green sea turtle, which are olive-green in colour, make a frequent appearance when sailing around the Whitsundays when rising to the surface.
They are known to appear around flourishing seaweed, coral reefs patches of seagrass. The Great Barrier Reef plays an important part of the population of green sea turtles and the Whitsundays, which is surrounded by the islands and sheltered Coral Sea, is the perfect location to breed.
