Abstract

Four endangered Olive Ridley turtles were washed up on a beach on the west coast of Cape York peninsula ensnared in ghost nets. The animals were rehabilitated at a facility at Pennefather. Upon release they were fitted with an Argos satellite transmitter to determine their movements and survival potential.
