Miracles on Mon Repos

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 - only 7 kilometres from Bundaberg.

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.
