Taronga Zoo Turtle Adoption
During the holidays Year 1 students at Berowra Public School raised $250 to adopt a turtle at Taronga Zoo, by doing 'a-bob-a-job'.
They will visit the zoo and turtles in November.
Well done to the students and families that participated in this activity!

The turtle was housed in a large pool at the hospital until the wound had healed and the turtle was able to eat again. The turtle recovered well and was released back to Pittwater with the help of the local community that had found it.
