Satellite Tracking

Sea turtles are migrating between nesting, feeding and wintering grounds. Thus, conserving nesting beaches is not enough to protect endangered sea turtles. Tracking sea turtles and discovering their routes is very important to protect other habitats that they use. Therefore, researchers are attaching sattalite transmitters to track sea turtles durin non-breeding period. DEKAMER is tracking turtles afer releasing treated turtles and after nesting season. You can find detailed information and project links below. Satellite tracking is very expensive. You can contact us to support our tracking project.
