Following six months of construction, we are delighted to have started moving our much loved residents into their new home, the amazing $5 million new exhibit – Day and Night on the Reef.
Our first creature to be moved to their new home was our much loved, Myrtle the Turtle. To help Myrtle settle in, Head Curator, Chris Brown (and his daughters) camped out at the aquarium for the night and monitored Myrtle’s behaviour to ensure she settled in smoothly. The role of ‘Turtle Watcher’ is a unique and important one.
Chris Brown said “It’s an exciting day here at Sea Life Sydney, Myrtle the Green Turtle has just moved into her new exhibit. Myrtle is a rescue turtle. She’s been with us for a long time now and she’s been nursed back to health and is doing very well in her new environment here.
“It’s going to be a very busy 24 hours for us, as with all animals, we monitor them as soon as they move into a new home so we’re going to taking observations all night just to make sure that Myrtle is very happy in her new home”
