Turtle Tracking in Queensland - Loggerhead

Project description: In December 2003, turtle researchers were excited to see the first of the 7381 loggerhead hatchlings tagged in early 1975 turn up at a nesting beach as a breeding adult. They named her Premiere and over the summer of 2003-04, she came ashore four times at Mon Repos and laid four clutches of eggs. Two other loggerheads tagged in 1975 also turned up and laid clutches this season. In late December 2003, researchers fitted Premiere with a radio tag and released her for tracking studies. They want to work out the home range for a loggerhead during the nesting period, the path of her migration after nesting, and her home range outside nesting time.
