The rest of the photos are from a flatback turtle tagging trip I volunteered on. We stayed at Mundabullangana Station which is maybe 50ish km south of Port Hedland. Most people think of the Pilbara and think desert, but there’s an amazing coastline up there!

Here’s some photos from some of the fieldwork I’ve done in the Pilbara. The first three photos were taken in the Onlsow salt mine during my Honours fieldwork – we were investigating the invasion of buffel grass from farmland into the natural spinifex grasslands of the Pilbara and how it affects the invertebrate community structure.
