Wanda was captured in the Ningaloo Marine Park near Sandy Bay, and tagged with the assistance of staff from BHP (who also named her!). Wanda was released off the beach at Sandy Bay.
Wanda measured 103.6 cm CCL and weighed 115.7 kg when tagged. She was tagged with flipper tags WB9878 (left) and WB9879 (right).
Wanda was examined with ultrasound and found to have vitellogenic follicles, indicating that she is likely to nest this season.
