A long, long way from home!

Hawksbill turtle | Parks Australia A hawksbill turtle tagged in Cocos waters back in 2003 has been found in the Lindi district of Tanzania. Hawksbill turtle | Parks Australia As we have now been informed, a local Tanzanian found the deceased turtle in a fishing net back in late 2008. This is an incredible journey by a turtle, travelling over 6,100 kilometres. In fact, it is the longest recorded migration for a hawksbill turtle and the first ever trans-Indian Ocean crossing reported for any sea turtle species.

Fancy sharing your dinner with this fella?

This is the red hermit crab (Coenobita perlata) found on the beaches of the Cocos Keeling Islands. They are relentless little scavengers that comb the beaches and vegetation behind, and easy to see when you sit on the beach watching sunset - they just appear around you. When camping on Pulu Keeling National Park they smell your cooking and come in large numbers to clean up on whatever they can get.
