Welcome to Happy Little Turtle!
Happy Little Turtle was created in 2016 as an online eco business. Having a degree in Zoology and Ecology and working within the environmental and education sector for many years, I had seen first-hand the damage plastics and pollution had done to our wildlife and environment. After taking time off work to stay at home with my 2 young children, I decided to create a business with the aim of showing people that we can all help our environment just by making a single choice; eco-friendly over plastic. But with my heart still focused on education, after 2 years, I decided to sell the business and focus on developing a range of educational workshops.
Moving to the Sunshine Coast in 2017 with my 2 children, I was so excited to be surrounded by all the amazing flora and fauna the coast has to offer. And with my light reignited, my journey to rebrand the business began. While I drew on my previous experience, I’m always one for wanting to build and expand my knowledge so what better way to be surrounded with wildlife again, than wildlife caring. After several years of being a carer, I founded a not-for-profit wildlife rehabilitation organisation whilst completing post graduate studies and working part time within the disability sector. However within my work, I noticed that there wasn’t many opportunities for community groups to explore and learn about our wildlife and the environment, so it was then that Happy Little Turtle re-hatched!
My love and passion for animals and the environment is undeniable. So my aim with Happy Little Turtle is to provide everyone an equal opportunity to ignite their own love and passion for nature and show them that we can all make a difference, regardless how small it may be!
I will look forward to meeting you soon, Nic x
