Cruz N. 2021. Islas Canarias (Proyecto Aegina): juvenile loggerheads. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/347) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=126).
Aegina is a cooperation project between Gobierno de Canarias (Spain) and Republic of Cabo Verde; the main goal of the project is to propose a management plan for the Protected Marine Areas important for the sea turtles at both archipelagos. In the Canary Islands there lives an important juvenile stock of loggerheads, and in Cabo Verde archipelago occurs one of the largest nesting populations of loggerheads in the world. Five transmitters will be deployed on males of the Cabo Verde nesting population, complementary with the ongoing studies of females by Marine Turtle Research Group (Brendan Godley, Lucy Hawkes; see also at Turtle Track). Another ten transmitters will be deployed on juvenile loggerheads in Canary Islands.
