Satellite Tracking of Dugongs and Green Turtles in Torres Strait and Shoalwater Bay, Queensland, Australia (2009-2012)

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

Fast-acquisition satellite telemetry was used to track eleven dugongs and ten green turtles at two geographically distinct foraging locations in Queensland, Australia to evaluate the inter- and intra-species spatial relationships and assess the efficacy of existing protection zones. Home-range analysis and bathymetric modeling were used to determine spatial use and compared with existing protection areas using GIS.
