Wanneroo scouts Tiffany Jones (16) and Riley Godding (12) along with Pelican Point Sea scout Michael Marko (13) will head to Lombok this December to spend a week collecting turtle eggs, feeding baby turtles and visiting local primary schools.

The scouts will also get to swim with turtles, take part in beach and reef clean-ups, and go on night turtle nesting patrols.

Seasoned travellers, Tiffany and Michael have been around Australia and overseas for previous scouts events.

‘This trip was something really different,’Tiffany said

‘It was offered and it’s an opportunity you just can’t turn down.’

The scouts’ trip will be a first for Riley, who said he was eager to learn more about the turtles.
