Western Australia Flatback

Each year from November to January, Australian Flatback turtles return to Eco Beach in The Kimberley in Western Australia, where they were born to lay multiple clutches of eggs. Some turtles nest here every twelve months while others come every second year or third year.

The flatback is one of seven species of sea turtles in the world that only nests in Australia.
