The project is an initiative of Ken Griffin, Secretary of Mackay and District Turtle Watch Association. It is a collaboration between Mackay & District Turtle Watch Assoc. and James Cook University to understand the behaviour of flatback turtles in Central Queensland. The four turtles were named by children of local schools.
