Myrtle the turtle moves into brand NEW HOME at Sea Life Sydney

November 1, 2018 Attraction No Comments Email Email

Following six months of construction, the team at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium are delighted to have started moving their much loved residents into their new home. The amazing $5 new exhibit – Day and Night on the Reef.

To help Myrtle settle in, Sea Life Sydney 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 role.

Chris Brown, Sea Life Sydney Aquarium Curator, 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”
