AIMS, QDERM and rangers from the Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA). Around 200 turtles were tagged, including 2 recaptures from previous surveys. The project aims to determine the status of marine turtles and dugongs in the Torres Strait, threats to these populations, and future monitoring needs.
