Two rehabilitated olive ridley sea turtles, ‘Jamieson’ and “Olive Oyl” , are the first turtles to be released and monitored in real-time by the attraction and turtle researchers.

Two days afters their release, Jamieson has travelled roughly 42.6 Kmand was tracked a few kilometres off Noosaville, while Olive Oyl has travelled 32.5 Km since his arrival and was tracked near Peican Waters .

The new tracking system enables the UnderWater World Team to track the turtles in real time – tracking the turtle’s location, depth and movement.
