Post nesting movements of olive ridley turtles in Australia, 2004

Project description: Little is known about olive ridley turtles in Australia. We know very little about their nesting biology and foraging grounds and nothing about their migratory routes. In Australia, the status of olive ridley turtles was recently elevated to "Endangered" because of high mortality in certain areas. One incident killed over 200 olive ridley turtles in a set net in 1992. [http://www.seaturtle.org/mtn/archives/mtn57/mtn57p5.shtml] In partnership with the Tiwi Land Council this project will track the movements of five olive ridley turtles from their nesting beach on the Tiwi Islands to unknown feeding grounds. This project will add vital information needed for the protection of this species in Australia. Olive ridley nesting sites in the Northern Territory can be found at www.wildlife.ntu.edu.au/publications/books_reports.html Source: seaturtle.org
