Kaiwalagal marine turtle project

Project description: This project is a collaboration between Kaiwalagal people of Torres Strait and researchers from James Cook University and the CRC Torres Strait. Torres Strait is the body of water that separates Australia from Papua New Guinea. It is an area of rich biodiversity and strong cultural heritage. Torres Strait islanders are one of the Indigenous groups of Australians and they have a strong affinity with the marine environment. Marine turtles are key cultural species for people in the Torres Strait, and Kaiwalagal communities such as those on Hammond Is and Thursday Is have been participating in turtle monitoring projects over the last year. We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the sea country in which we work, and in which the turtles were caught for this study.
