The Cocos (Keeling) Islands are located in the Indian Ocean 2 950 km north-west of Perth, 975 km west south west of Christmas Island and 1000 km south-west of Java (Australian Government 2004). They comprise two atolls; the northern atoll containing one large horseshoe shaped island with native vegetation and the southern atoll containing 26 islands that are vegetated primarily with coconut palms. Two islands on the southern atoll group are inhabited, West Island with 100 inhabitants and Home Island with 450 inhabitants. The northern Atoll is a Commonwealth of Australia National Park called Pulu Keeling and supports large numbers of red footed boobies.
Sea turtle research has been conducted on Cocos (Keeling) Islands since 1999 with Parks Australia North and Biomarine International. This research has revealed that the southern Atoll of Cocos (Keeling) Islands supports large number of foraging green and hawksbill turtles. Limited green turtle nesting occurs on the southern atoll with moderate green turtle nesting occurring on Pulu Keeling. The Cocos (Keeling) Islands were visited by Charles Darwin in 1836 and describes a turtle hunt and turtle trade. Source: seaturtle.org
