Description about design - Waru, the turtle

Waru, the turtle is a significant part of the life and culture of Torres Strait Islander communities and Aboriginal communities in the Far North of Australia. The Green Sea Turtle not only provides food to the people, but as a symbol, it is a demonstration of the continued and ongoing cultural, spiritual and economic relationship between people and the ocean. Waru is our past, our present and our future.
