Greenfleet is excited to announce that we’re heading back up to Bundaberg for the next phase of the Low Glow project!
On Friday November 9, we’ll be joined by our Low Glow collaborators to discuss what’s next for the project. The goal is to identify opportunities over the coming years to see what else we can be doing to reduce light glow and protect the local, endangered turtle population.
To recap, Low Glow started as a collaboration between Greenfleet, the Prince’s Trust Australia and The Walt Disney Company Australia, to protect the nesting Loggerhead turtles at Mon Repos beach. In 2017, we planted more than 80,000 trees to create a ‘green curtain’ and prevent light pollution from disorienting the turtle hatchlings as they make their way out to sea.
But that was just the beginning. Now, the partnership is stronger than ever – and so is Greenfleet’s commitment to our work in Bundaberg. We can’t wait to get our collaborators back together to plan our next steps and explore what the future holds for our work with the turtles at Mon Repos.
We’re also pleased to say that amongst a number of people and organisations joining us on the day, one of our longest running corporate supporters – Smartgroup – is coming along. This just goes to show the national significance of this project, and how important it is for our climate and environment – not just in Bundaberg, but for all Australians.
With that in mind, we’ll be looking in to global, national and local sponsorship opportunities on the day too. There’s a huge potential to enhance the Low Glow Collaboration’s activities even further – and with the help of all of our supporters, we’re looking forward to doing just that.
The full list of organisations joining us on the day includes: The Prince’s Trust Australia, Bundaberg Regional Council, the Sea Turtle Alliance, Queensland Department of Environment and Science, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Bundaberg North Burnett Tourism, IMPACT Community Services, Smartgroup, Telstra and Queensland Trust for Nature.
Stay tuned for what we come up with to find out what’s next for the Low Glow Collaboration.
