This dataset, collected by Morigenos, comprises sightings of loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) in Slovenian and adjacent waters of the north Adriatic Sea, between 2002 and 2008. Dataset was collected as part of a long-term program for the study, monitoring and conservation of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). This resulted in one of the largest datasets on free-ranging marine turtles in the north Adriatic Sea.
Morigenos is an independent and non-profit, scientific non-governmental organization that aims to combine scientific research, monitoring, education, public awareness, capacity building and management, to achieve effective conservation of the marine environment and biodiversity.
The central activity of Morigenos is the Slovenian Dolphin Project, a long-term research, monitoring and conservation programme, focusing on bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in Slovenian and adjacent waters in the northern Adriatic Sea. Research activities focus on dolphin distribution, abundance, social structure, habitat use, feeding habits, fishery interactions and tourism impact through dedicated boat surveys, land-based watches and theodolite tracking, photo-identification and mark-recapture techniques, behavioural observations and passive acoustic monitoring.
Other activities include research on loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta), education, public awareness and capacity building.
