Witt M. 2021. Gabon 2007-08: Mayumba, Leatherback Turtles. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/1452) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=270).
This project uses satellite telemetry to gain insights into the behaviour of female leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) nesting at Mayumba National Park in Gabon, a globally important rookery. The project has now entered into its third year of tracking. See the photo library for this project.
This work compliments that carried out by WWF, which studied adults from a range of locations throughout the Atlantic as part of a basin wide project.
