Gorgon Flatback Turtle Tagging Program
We conduct an annual flatback tagging program to assess and monitor the status of a nesting population on the east coast of Barrow Island. Equivalent studies are also undertaken at a reference beach located on the mainland at Mundabullangana Station, south of Port Hedland. The program began in 2005/06, with five years of baseline data collected prior to construction of the Gorgon Gas Development in 2010 on Barrow Island.
Volunteer taggers are crucial to the success of this program. To date, over 750 people have joined us on the beaches to gather information which is critical for effective monitoring of these turtle populations. The Gorgon Flatback Turtle Tagging Program presents a unique opportunity to interact with marine turtles and collect important scientific data without bearing the costs associated with other volunteer environmental programs. It’s also a lot of fun!
We need volunteers between November and January each summer. Applications to be part of the tagging program open in July each year, please 'Like' our Facebook page (see link below) to be kept informed.
