Raising Indigenous community awareness and promoting on-ground recovery activities for marine turtles and dugongs in Torres Strait

Project description: The purpose of this project was to raise Indigenous community awareness and promote on-ground recovery activities for marine turtles and dugongs in Torres Strait. We successfully completed the project through working with communities on Hammond and Thursday Islands to establish (1) a marine turtle project and (2) a marine turtle and dugong catch monitoring project. Additional financial support for the project came from James Cook University, CRC Torres Strait and Ocean Park Conservation Foundation.

The project achieved all of its stated objectives, and the projectís results have greatly enhanced our knowledge of marine turtles and dugongs in Torres Strait.
