Intelligent Technology Puts WA Turtle Rookery Officially on the World Map

A new study conducted using state-of-the-art mapping technology has uncovered Gnaraloo Bay, in Western Australia’s remote north-west, as part of the third largest Loggerhead turtle population in the world.

Run between November 2010 and February 2011, the Gnaraloo Turtle Conservation Program (GTCP), which was underpinned with world-leading Esri Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, found 426 sea turtle nests along the seven kilometre-long rookery – after 522 were reported in 2009/10 and 368 in 2008/09.

Turtle researchers consider sites with more than 300 nests per season as ‘significant’.
