Flatback sea turtles (Natator depressus) have a restricted global distribution and are considered endemic to the Australian Continental Shelf. Nesting is limited to mainland and island beaches of northern Australia (Limpus 2007). Marine turtles are long-lived, slow to mature and impacted by a number of threats. Flatback turtles are listed as Vulnerable; marine; migratory under the national EPBC Act 1999. The global IUCN listing is Data Deficient (DEP 2016).
