Watara

This is my interpretation of “Watara” which means in the Kalkadoon language emerge, grow up.

When the endangered loggerhead mother turtle returns to lay her eggs she is very lucky indeed for she is the only one in a thousand of her friends and family that have survived and made it to adulthood which is 30 years old. From the time the turtles are hatched they face a world of danger on land and in the sea from foxes, birds, sharks and fishing nets to name a few. A mother turtle always returns to the place of her birth to lay her eggs which is why these special places need to be looked after for years to come.

The spirit trails link all the turtles together as without all of them none would survive to Watara, The turtle is a special animal that needs our protection and understanding.
