Turtle Hour will be held on Thursday 26 November in the Bundaberg Region.

It follows on from the region’s inaugural Turtle Hour which was held in November 2019.

The event was a world first and Bundaberg Regional Council has decided to make Turtle Hour an annual event, given the ecological significance of turtles nesting in our region.

Anyone interested in being part of Turtle Hour – from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on Thursday 26 November - can register on the form below.

Council will email you a poster and social media tile to promote your involvement and encourage friends and family to be part of Turtle Hour 2020 too.

Then you simply turn off your lights from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on Thursday 26 November.

To find out more about what Council is doing to reduce urban glow, how you can be involved and track light glow in our region, please visit www.knowyourglow.com.au.

The Reducing Urban Glow Project is funding by the Australian Government under Round Two of the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program.

Bundaberg Regional Council would also like to recognise the valuable contributions of the following project partners: Queensland Government Department of Environment and Science; Ergon Energy; Burnett Mary Regional Group; Central Queensland University; Greenfleet on behalf of The Prince’s Trust Australia; Bundaberg Tourism; and Sea Turtle Alliance.
