Turtle Miracles on Mon Repos
 
02:59
In Bundaberg on the Southern Great Barrier Reef between November and March, there is a miracle that takes place nightly on the shores of Mon Repos beach. It is the place where over 50% of the entire concentration of nesting loggerhead turtles in the Southern Hemisphere comes to lay their eggs. These mumma turtles were born here as long as 80 years ago, hatched from a nest with roughly 100 siblings and made a scramble for the ocean. They survived the 1 in 1000 odds of surviving to maturity and now they use the Earth's magnetic field as an internal GPS to find their way back home and repeat the cycle. Visit the turtles in Bundaberg: http://www.queensland.com/en-au/explore-queensland/bundaberg-north-burnett/things-to-see-and-do/turtles --------------- Ranger guided encounters operate seven nights a week from 7pm from Nov to late March *Nesting Turtles can be viewed after dark from Nov to Jan. *Turtle hatchlings can be viewed at night from Jan to March.

Riversleigh Fossil Sites | Queensland's 5 World Heritage Sites
 
01:31
Once upon a time, the Riversleigh area of Outback Queensland was a rich rainforest area. Approximately 25 million years the land was in transition from rainforest to dry grasslands. The fossils found in the Riversleigh world heritage sites are unique because they are preserved in 3D due to the makeup of the freshwater limestone in which they have been found. The Riversleigh fossil deposits are among the richest and most extensive in the world, with some fossils dating back 15 to 25 million years. A few interesting facts about Riversleigh: • The sites include the first records of many groups of living mammals including the ‘marsupial lion’ • The fossils span a record of mammal evolution of at least 20 million years in length. • The variety of deposits at Riversleigh has led to an understanding of how the environment has changed over time and how the animals that lived here have changed too.
