Barrow Island flatbacks 2005-2006

Project description: Flatback turtles are being tracked from Barrow Island as part of the environmental investigations taking place on behalf of Chevron's Gorgon Gas project based at Barrow Island. Kiwisat ptts were deployed on 4 nesting flatback turtles commencing Nov 29, 2005. Since flatback turtles are not hard shelled animals (their carapace lacks keratin) the transmitters must be attached using a harness arrangement. The flatback turtles using the nesting beaches on Barrow Island are also being flipper tagged. Two transmitters were also deployed from Mundabullangana station on the mainland in early Dec 2005. This site is being used as a reference flipper tagging site for the Barrow Island flatback population. Source: seaturtle.org
