Episode Summary

Sea Turtles
Sea turtles have swum the world's oceans for over 100 million years – they are one of nature's truly heroic survivors. However in just the last 200 years human intervention has had an appalling affect on turtle numbers: Feral pigs gorge on it's eggs, plastic thrown into the oceans is eaten and destroys their digestive systems and stray fishing nets ensnare turtles, causing them to die a slow, agonising death. Conservation duo Aleisha Caruso and Ashleigh Young refuse to sit back and wait for sea turtles to be wiped out forever: They hold a turtle tennis fundraising event, in order to buy and deliver a quad bike for conservation teams in the far north of Queensland, who clear the nets and rubbish from the remote beaches of Cape York.moreless
