Spatial and behavioural ecology of hawksbill turtles nesting on Groote Eylandt, northern Australia

Hawksbill turtles are classified Critically Endangered by the IUCN following intense commercial exploitation that decimated global stocks. Despite Australia supporting one of the largest breeding aggregations worldwide, hawksbill turtle biology and ecology remains poorly documented, especially for populations nesting in the Northern Territory. I examined the nesting ecology and inter-nesting and post-nesting spatial and diving behaviour of hawksbill turtles at Groote Eylandt archipelago (Northern Territory, Australia) using beach surveys and bio-telemetry.
