Rees A. 2021. Green Turtles in Syria. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/1822) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=76).
In 2004, an important new green turtle rookery was dicovered in Syria. Follow up work discovered sea turtles are being utilised as food in the country and are being negatively impacted by fisheries interaction. In 2006 we are continuing the vital work from the last years and tracking a green turtle to identify her internesting habitat and post breeding migration. This was originally planned for 2005 but not realised due to the low nesting levels that year.
