Over the summer, turtle monitoring coordinators from the Care for Hedland Environmental Association have been staying at Discovery Parks - Port Hedland. If they haven't been busy watching the little shell babies emerging on the beach, they were resting in one of our cabins after a long day's work.
Every year, the turtles that come to the beach to nest for the very first time are tagged & measured by the Care for Hedland team. Some special ones are chosen to be named and adopted.
If you ever thought naming your pup was fun - a turtle is even more exciting. Slick? Shellby? Mr. Clean? The possibilities are endless for your new friend.
As a gift, Kelly and Melissa, the coordinators of the Care for Hedland Turtle Monitoring Program have adopted & named a turtle for us.
And the name of this turtle is: Discovery!
We aren't biased or anything, but we think this is a pretty neat name. Turtles journey far and wide through the great blue waters. They're curious creatures and adventurers - just like us. So, Discovery, we welcome you to the Discovery Parks family with open arms (ahem, we mean flippers).
In the meantime, head over to Discovery Parks - Port Hedland to catch the hatchlings on the beach. These creatures are magical, the location is spectacular, and we're in a unique position to be in the middle of all the action.
