Introduction



Flatback turtles are being tracked from Barrow Island as part of the environmental investigations underpinning Chevron's Gorgon LNG project based on the island. The first flatback turtles to be satellite tracked in Western Australia were released from Barrow Island in 2005 and since that time flatback turtles have been tracked annually from Barrow and from Mundabullangana Station on the mainland.

All proceeds from the adoption program for these animals are being donated to seaturtle.org
