Abstract

Español
Programa de monitorización de juveniles de tortuga boba (Caretta caretta) procedentes del “Proyecto de Ampliación del hábitat reproductor de la tortuga boba en la Macaronesia”, iniciado en el año 2006 y que pretende llevar a cabo la reintroducción de la especie en el archipiélago Canario a partir de huevos traídos desde Cabo Verde.
Estas 5 tortugas, de entre 7 y 8 años de edad, fueron criadas en cautividad desde su nacimiento en las instalaciones del Cabildo Insular de Fuerteventura (Centro de conservación y recuperación de tortugas marinas de Morro Jable) y de la ULPGC en Taliarte, Gran Canaria. Serán monitorizadas mediante transmisores de seguimiento por satélite tras ser liberadas en la playa de Cofete, Fuerteventura, lugar de nacimiento de la mayoría de los ejemplares y área principal del programa de reintroducción de esta especie en Canarias.
El objetivo de esta actividad es identificar los tipos de hábitats que usarán tras su liberación, localizar su área de distribución, e identificar rutas migratorias en caso de que llegaran a migrar.
La ONG ADS Biodiversidad es la responsable científica de esta actividad y el Cabildo Insular de Fuerteventura el principal colaborador.

English
Monitoring programme of juvenile loggerheads (Caretta caretta) from the project: “Enlargement of the reproductive habitat of loggerhead turtles in the Macaronesia region”, started in 2006 and focused on the loggerhead reintroduction in the Canary Islands through eggs brought from the Cape Verde colony.
These 5 turtles are 7 to 8 years old and have been reared in captivity during their entire life in the Marine turtle conservation and recovery Centre of Cabildo de Fuerteventura (Morro Jable) and University of Las Palmas facilities (in Taliarte, Gran Canaria). They will be monitored with satellite tracking devices, after their release in Cofete beach, which was their hatch location and the main area selected for the reintroduction programme.
This activity aims to identify the different kind of habitats used after their release, localize their distribution area, and identify migratory corridors in case they migrate.
The NGO ADS Biodiversidad is the scientific coordinator and Cabildo de Fuerteventura the main partner
