DESCRIPTION OF TAXONOMIC GROUP FOR EXPERT ASSESSMENT
Six species of marine turtles reside in the marine habitats of Australia, predominantly north of 29 °S. All six species migrate between foraging and nesting sites. Post hatchlings of five species undertake oceanic migrations which take them outside of Australia’s EEZ. The flatback turtle has a life history largely contained within the waters of the Australian EEZ. Each species can be separated into genetically distinct management units (MUs) and Australia shares these many of these MUs with neighbouring nations. This assessment focusses on the state and trend of marine turtles in their offshore foraging areas; nesting beaches are covered in the coasts chapter.

DATA STREAM(S) USED IN EXPERT ASSESSMENT
Data on state and trends and associated spatial and temporal coverage are detailed in the publications provided in the reference list and is based on state government agency and independent surveys.
