Abstract

Objectives:
The proposal aims to assess the presence and population status of sea snake and marine turtles at Ashmore Reef.

1. To quantify the presence of EPBC listed fauna (sea snakes and marine turtles) at Ashmore Reef.

2. To identify and quantify the species of sea turtle and their respective numbers nesting on the islands and sand cays of Ashmore Reef.

3. To identify and quantify the species of sea snakes and their respective numbers and density on the reefal habitats at Ashmore Reef

4. To identify and quantify the hatching success of the species of sea turtle nesting on the islands and sand cays of Ashmore reef.

5. To identify and quantify the effect of predators of sea turtle nests laid on the islands and sand cays of Ashmore Reef

6. Should permits and transport be available to make a comparative but much shorter survey of the EPBC listed fauna at Cartier Island.
