"Dave Davo" was captured while courting a female green in the shallows at Sandy Cape, on the NW tip of Fraser Island.
He was 100.6cm long, and was not previously tagged.
He was taken to the Sandy Cape Lighthouse, where the tracker and flipper tags were attached and skin biopsy samples were taken for DNA and stable isotope analysis.r
He spent until late December courting around the northern tip for Fraser Island, and then took 3 weeks to travel the 630km home to Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays.
