Love sea life?

Yvonne Jessup, Byron Bay

Last Wednesday, 1 September, an unfortunate incident occurred that a few locals have been trying to prevent, and have brought to Byron Council’s attention.

A turtle was rescued on the beach near Captain Cook Lookout with part of a sandbag around its neck. The bag looked like one of the smaller ones exposed under the kiosk at Clarkes Beach in Byron, although the larger ones under Reflections Caravan Park are also splitting.

If regular walkers, swimmers, kayakers, boat operators, and surfers remove light, loose bags, and Council dealt with heavier ones, this incident hopefully will not occur again.
