Italy D. 2021. Bepi Project - Adriatic Sea. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/1680) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=6).
The aim of this project is to track a male loggerhead released from Porto Garibaldi, Northern Italy, in the Adriatic sea. The turtle (84 cm CCL; weight 59 kg) was found nearly dead in July 2002 in the same area, and was immediately named Bepi, a local nickname for Giuseppe (Joseph). The turtle had three large injuries on the carapace and a series of fractures of the hind legs. He has since recovered thanks to the efforts of vets of the local Experimental Zooprophylactic Institute and volunteers of a local organisation (ARCHE'). Bepi was deemed ready to be released in September 2003. On 24 Sept. a Telonics ST20 PTT was attached to his carapace with epoxy resin and fiberglass. Afterwards, the turtle was kept for a few days in an at-sea enclosure and released a few km offshore on 3 October.
