Baby turtles rescued after taking wrong turn

Hundreds of baby loggerhead turtles were rescued at Redcliffe, north of Brisbane, last night after they streamed along a road instead of heading for the ocean.

Police cordoned off Flinders Parade at Scarborough, while local residents and staff from Australia Zoo helped to gather the small creatures.

One turtle was found dead after failing to reach the ocean.

Resident Trish Simpson lives in the area and says the turtles may have been confused by a bright street light.

“We saw hundreds and hundreds of turtles coming down the road into the BBQ area,” she said.
