Barco S. 2022. Virginia Aquarium Sea Turtle Research. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/978) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=866).
The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center Foundation is conducting health assessment and telemetry research using wild-caught and by-caught loggerhead and Kemp’s ridley sea turtles. The project goals include comparing rehabilitated and wild animals, developing a relatively fine temporal and spatial scale surface time ratio for abundance estimates, and understanding how “near shore” and “off shore” populations interact and utilize the habitat.
