Background

Coral was captured in the Ningaloo Marine Park, and tagged with the assistance of the local volunteers. Coral was released off the beach at Sandy Bay. She was named by Marley hart from Exmouth.

Coral measured 94.4 cm CCL and weighed 94.7 kg when tagged.

Coral has flipper tags WB4817 and WB4828. She escaped from the beach before we had finished antifouling her tag when an unexpectedly large wave came!
