November is Turtle Month!
All through this month, researchers at University of Western Sydney are focussing on one thing: turtles! In Australia November is the most important time of their reproductive cycle, and Associate Professor Ricky Spencer is one of the scientists spreading the word about endangered turtles in freshwater rivers across the country.
Ricky joined Jess on Weekend Breakfast to give the details on the Turtle Month initiative.
