Radio transmitter tracks first turtle

MDTWA Project in conjunction with James Cook University

The transmitter program is an initiative of Mackay and District Turtle Watch Association. Proudly funded by Mackay Regional Council.

Information will be updated as turtles are added to the radio transmitter program but this particular turtle was tagged at Ball Bay on the 21st friday 7.00am Helen and Tuka from Haliday Bay.

The radio tag was put on this turtle after being trained by Dr Mark Hamann from JCU. Three more to go for this year and a further 4 for next season. A big thank you must go out to Mark for his commitment to the project.
