Tag Recovery Supports Satellite Tracking of a Green Turtle

Project description: On 7 June 1990, a Platform Terminal Transmitter (PTT 5347) was attached to a post-nesting green turtle at West Island in the remote Ashmore Reef National Nature Reserve which lies in the Timor Sea off the North West Coast of Australia. The turtle was also tagged with two titanium tags from the Western Australian Department of Conservation and Land Management (WACALM). The aim was to track the movements of green turtles from the nesting beach on Ashmore Reef to provide a better understanding of post-nesting migration for management purposes.
