The project is a collaboration between James Cook University and the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. It is funded by Gladstone Ports Corporation and it aims to understand how flatback turtles use the inter-nesting habitat and foraging areas. Turtles are caught and released from Curtis Island which is adjacent to the Queensland town of Gladstone.
