Townsville to host National Turtle Symposium
2013-Oct-14 11:05:43 AM Local News
Experts from around the country are gathering in Townsville today to lead discussions about the rising number of sick and dying turtles on the Great Barrier Reef.

For the past three years, there have been record numbers of turtle strandings on North Queensland beaches, highlighting concerns for the health of turtle populations right across Australia.

Dr Ellen Ariel from James Cook University said this week's Turtle Health Forum, the only one of its kind in Australia, will unite more than 100 people from different professional and geographical backgrounds for a common cause.

“There'll be a wide range of experts attending the forum - from vets and scientists to rangers, Traditional Owner groups and volunteers. Some have come from as far as New Zealand and the United States to participate,” Dr Ariel said.

“We are really hoping to combine all this knowledge and experience to improve the way we assess, treat and assist these threatened animals,” she said.

“James Cook University is also pleased to announce the Sea Turtle Health Research Facility will start operating at the end of this year. This will be the only facility of its kind in Australia.”

Farming Drone
A grain farmer near Moree in north-west NSW is looking into the potential for the use of drones and unmanned vehicles in precision agriculture.

Ben Boughton won a Nuffield Scholarship recently and will take an international research trip next year to investigate how other countries are using them.

Mr Boughton believes unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, being used in the Australian grains industry could soon become a reality."

The technology's come down to a price point where farmers and people involved in the ag industry can see value in these machines," he said."

It could be something as simple as being able to get a cheap little plane, or what we call a UAV, up in the sky to have a look around."

But then it can go as far as advanced uses where we can map the fields and if we also get an advanced sensor on our UAVs we can do some 3D modelling of our fields. From there the potential is endless."
