In 2018, we are tracking a turtle named “Isla.”
Isla will be tracked as she leaves the nesting beach and makes her way north after nesting season is over. She has been outfitted with special tag developed by Wildlife Computers. This tag records location, and water temperature and will relay data via the Argos satellite system to our team daily. Data are plotted on this interactive map as it becomes available.
