Seven out of the twenty-two yearlings, which were released in April/May 2011, were detected by the listening stations (hydro-phones) in the river 7 months after they were released.
Researchers from the University of Queensland are conducting a tracking program of Mary River turtles. An adult female has been recorded at 7.4m ..this means she is hanging around on the bed of the river …..no wonder they are hard to find in the river..How long will she stay there? What food is there? Many questions to answer.
