Hear about how animal attached cameras and smart-technology is being used to reveal the underwater activities of flatback turtles foraging in Roebuck Bay. Jenna is undertaking a PhD at Murdoch University exploring the at-sea foraging behaviour, physiology and ecology of flatback turtles, with the view of informing management and conservation efforts for the species. Jenna will highlight some of the challenges flatback turtles face, her research methods and findings, and work that is being undertaken within WA to ensure the success of populations. In time, she hopes her work can be used to help sea turtles elsewhere in Australia and overseas.
