Boaties asked to slow down after turtle washes up
BOORAL resident Andrew Mitreger has called for boaties to slow down in Booral after the death of a turtle on Friday.
The mature turtle measured about 90cm in length and washed up in high tide about lunchtime.
Mr Mitreger said it was about the eighth turtle that had washed up in the past few years and suspected it could have been caused by a boat.
He said despite the introduction of a green zone several years ago, some boaties continued to speed through the area.
Boaties should visit nprsr.qld.gov.au to stay updated on boating and fishing requirements in the green zone.
