McClellan C. 2021. Gabon 2010-11: Corisco Bay, Green Turtles. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/572) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=475).
As part of a larger marine biodiversity project in Gabon, this year we are adding satellite tracking of green turtles from their foraging grounds in Corisco Bay. The project aims to examine size-based foraging patterns of turtles. These movement data will be integrated with a charaterization of the local habitat and an assessment of anthropogenic threats.
