Adopt So Beached Bro' Johnson
"So Beached Bro' Johnson" was captured while courting a female green in the shallows at Sandy Cape, on the NW tip of Fraser Island.
He was 102cm 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.
He continued courting for a week, took a 2 week journey down the Sandy Straits to the bottom of Fraser Island, and was back courting again at Sandy Cape for the last week of November 2016.
We are interested to find his migratory route and home range at the end of the courting season.
