Fantastic fundraising efforts by another Aussie family for the Gnaraloo loggerhead sea turtles!

Avia Frankham and her dad, Barry, put enormous effort, dedication and time into sewing a range of different sized, custom designer bags, with all proceeds going to the GWF. Thank you Frankhams!

“Hello my name is Avia and I have been camping at 3Mile ever since I was born. I worked on a school project where we needed to do something positive for an issue that we are passionate about. My idea was to upcycle old wetsuits into saleable products and donate the money to the GWF”.

“I have been going to Gnaraloo my whole life it’s my favourite place to be. I want to make sure the turtles are protected as they are such special little creatures that have lived there for so long. That is why I was motivated to support this foundation. I am also a keen surfer trying to make surfing as eco friendly as possible. ????????‍♀️????

Avia Frankham

Avia spent hours, supported by her family, to make these special once-off bags out of upcycled wetsuit material, which is not an easy stitching job by any means!

“Avia, it was a pleasure to work with you and we thank you for your efforts!”

READ the GWF’s “Notice of harm to Aboriginal and environmental heritage values at Gnaraloo Cape Farquhar, Southern Ningaloo Coast, National and World Heritage Area” (January 2021) here. The track was opened by the Shire of Carnarvon on 1 December 2020 and this serious matter has still not been stopped as at November 2023.

Speak or write to your local Member of Parliament to express your concerns about the damage being done to the Gnaraloo coastline, its turtle nesting areas as well as to the heritage values of the Gnaraloo Cape Farquhar Area and press them for better resourcing and action to stop this.

The GWF calls for the Farquhar track to be closed & for Gnaraloo Bay and Gnaraloo Cape Farquhar to be recognized in legislation as loggerhead turtle nesting sanctuaries.
