Episode 19 celebrates National Threatened Species Day 2022; a day when Australians come together to remember extinct species, and put thought to curbing future biodiversity loss. We look at celebrating one of Australia's conservation success stories, the Nest to Ocean Program which sees thousands of people across Queensland's coasts working together to support nesting sea-turtles. For the Loggerhead Sea-turtle, who's South Pacific population is listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN Red List, it's especially vital to maximise nest and hatchling survival rates. We join Dr Col Limpus (OAM), Chief Scientist at the Queensland Department of Environment & Science and Associate Professor of the University of Queensland. He takes us on a remarkable journey of the last 50 years of his life spent researching, teaching and empowering people to save Loggerhead Sea-turtles, and other species, from extinction.
