Hudson Langan-Stark (Year 7) has wanted to be a Marine Biologist since he was seven. His wish came true when he joined the organisation called ‘Little Dreamers’, which supports the siblings of those who have disabilities.
Husdon’s wish was to go to Townsville and be a Marine Biologist for a day at James Cook University (JCU), which has a top marine science program.
Below is Hudson’s recount of his time at JCU:
“At JCU, I got to do many exciting activities, but one of my favourites was working at The Caraplace. The Caraplace is the world’s first and only turtle health research facility. There, I got to learn all kinds of facts about sea turtles, but I also learned that funding for the facility was quite difficult. The reason why it is so hard, is that many organisations give grants to continue research, but the sea turtles still need food, holding containers, maintenance of their filters, and other basic needs. So, to give back to the Caraplace for giving me my dream experience and the opportunity of a lifetime, I want to raise enough money to help the turtles so that we can continue researching healthy turtles.”
Hudson is hoping to make a difference in this cause very close to his heart, and would appreciate the support of anyone who is in a position to donate to the continued research of healthy turtles.
