Coleman A. 2021. IMMS Ridley 2. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/1081) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=614).
Turtles are an important part of the ecosystem, and may serve as a good biological indicator of the health of the environment they inhabit. They are constantly impacted by a variety of both natural and anthropogenic factors. Satellite telemetry is a powerful tool for examining long-term movements of these protected species, and enhancing conservation and management efforts. These observations will allow us to see if these turtles that were released off the coast of Florida will return to Mississippi Sound, or if they will move to other places. The use of satellite tags on recently rehabilitated and released Kemp’s ridley sea turtles will increase our knowledge about the daily activities and habitat delineation of these animals.
