Introduction

The Dampier Archipelago near Karratha, NW Australia provides important nesting and foraging habitat for several species of sea turtle including the hawksbill turtle.

The hawksbill rookeries within the archipelago are nationally and internationally significant with approximately 400 turtles recorded annually during a two week census on Rosemary Island.

Although the census on Rosemary Island has been conducted over several decades, nothing is known about their inter-nesting habitat, migration paths or home foraging grounds.

Two of the turtles tracked in this project were first recorded nesting 22 years ago on Rosemary Island.
