Tracking Olive Ridley turtles off Cape York Peninsula using satellite tags (2010)

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Aug 29, 2019 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

Four endangered Olive Ridley turtles were washed up on a beach on the west coast of Cape York peninsula ensnared in ghost nets. The animals were rehabilitated at a facility at Pennefather. Upon release they were fitted with an Argos satellite transmitter to determine their movements and survival potential.
