WHY STUDY TURTLES? Marine turtles have lived in the oceans for over 100 million years. They are an integral part of the traditional culture of many coastal indigenous peoples throughout the world. We will study them because they migrate long distances between their feeding grounds and nesting sites. This migration recognises no international borders or countries. All marine turtle species are experiencing serious threats to their survival. The main threats are pollution and changes to important turtle habitats, especially coral reefs, seagrass beds, mangrove forests and nesting beaches. Other threats include accidental drowning in fishing gear, over-harvesting of turtles and eggs, and predation of eggs and hatchlings by foxes, feral pigs, dogs and goannas and humans.

INSERT PHOTO Northern Territory • Flatback Turtles are the most widely spread nesting marine turtle species in the Northern Territory (Chatto & Baker 2008), nesting on a wide variety of beach types around the entire coastline. Through surveys held between 1994 and 2004, Chatto and Baker (2008) have identified 46 distinct areas within the Northern Territory that are significant nesting areas for the Flatback Turtle. • The majority of these sites are on islands. Arnhem Land rookeries include Cobourg Peninsula and Greenhill Island (Hope & Smit 1998), Field Island (Winderlich 1998; Schauble et al. 2006) and Mc. Cluer Island (Guinea 1990). West of Darwin, significant nesting occurs in Fog Bay, Northern Territory (Guinea & Whiting 1999). Other significant sites include Turtle Point, North Perron Island the Tiwi Islands (Chatto 1998).
