Project Report | Oct 11, 2022
Healthy shark and turtle populations recorded

By Jasmine Taberer | Project Leader

 

The third quarter of 2022 saw the continuation of all of the Curieuse turtle and shark conservation projects. We finished the peak of turtle and shark seasons, with daily checks of the turtle nesting beaches for new nests and the excavation of nests as well as assessing the nesting success, and continued monitoring of the Lemon shark juveniles.

The third quarter showed healthy populations of both species, especially considering it was low season. A total of 15 nests were excavated and a further 22 activities were recorded.

For the juvenile lemon sharks in the marine national park, the numbers slowed down which is to be expected. A total of 5 were caught and tagged. In total 3 Scalloped Hammerheads were caught in the second and third quarter which is record high. We’re still in the process of analysing this rare occurrence and finding out why it’s happened. We’re aiming to conduct a drone surveillance survey to assess whether there are more non-target species in the marine national park. 

We're planning to retrieve the 12 acoustic receivers from the seabed surrounding Curieuse Island in the coming months so that we can further analyse the juvenile sicklefin Lemon sharks behavioural patterns so assess if the marine park boundaries are sufficient. 

For the third quarter of 2022 we continued the great progress in research and conservation of sharks and turtles in Curieuse Marine National Park. We are so fortunate to have incredible people supporting our work, and without that we wouldn’t be able to continue to successfully conserve these endangered species.

We want to thank you so much on behalf of the park for helping, and hope that you continue to support our work into the future too.
