We have spent the last couple of decades working with sea turtles in northern Australia, but still get the same excitement when spending time with them in the wild. They are beautiful creatures with individual personalities, & have the most epic life cycle that make them truly fascinating! 💕✌🏻️😀(Kelsey & Brett)
It's nearing the end of the summer nesting season for green turtles in Australia. Along the Great Barrier Reef beaches & islands, most females have laid their last clutches and are migrating back to their feeding grounds, some over 3000kms away (they won't nest for another 5-7 years!). Many of the eggs are hatching & hatchlings are emerging from the sand to start their epic life journey of travelling ocean currents around the World for 10-15 years, before settling on a home reef (often thousands of km away), & then 30 years later travelling back to her home beach to nest! Amazing! Truly fascinating ancient mariners! 💕✌🏻️💙🌏
The Macadamia Tree (Macadamia integriflora) is native to the sub-tropical rainforests of Australia. Their natural range is in north eastern NSW and south east Queensland. Macadamia nut oil is the richest botanical source of Palmitoleic acid. Palmitoleic acid is primarily a healing agent, a mono unsaturated fatty acid that is a highly effective anti oxidant. This fatty acid is believed to support cell regeneration in the skin. This same fatty acid is also found in the sebum of the skin, particularly in youth, but diminishes with the aging process. This gives Macadamia oil a natural affiliation with the skin. There is evidence that the skin looses Palmitoleic acid content and slows production as we age. Macadamia oil is particularly effective...
We love this amazing photo of dolphins on the Great Barrier Reef. It was taken last week from a helicopter doing surveys in the marine park over Tijou Reef, north of Lockhart River. This area is very remote, situated offshore from Cape York in the northern GBR. Many of these reefs and islands are rarely visited. It really highlights how beautiful the GBR is - a special place that needs to be treasured & protected..

We are a happy family of 3. Myself (Kelsey), my amazing husband Brett, and our beautiful daughter Claire. We live on the east coast of Australia - a beautiful part of the World with endless places to explore. Our inspiration comes from the simple forms and beauty found in nature, the ocean and our experiences with wildlife that have left a permanent mark on our souls. You see, we have spent many years working with Endangered Species in some of the most remote and pristine parts of Australia. We have seen and experienced nature at it's rawest and most beautiful. And it has left us more inspired & increasingly passionate about protecting these places. Fundamentally, we like to think that...
