The Journey of a Kefalonia turtle tagged by Wildlife Sense

We were contacted by a local of Manfredonia, Italy a few days ago letting us know he found one of our turtles washed up dead from net entanglement.

He was able to contact us due to the metal tags we placed on her while conducting a night survey which just emphasises how important it is tagging the turtles we see.

It’s awful news for us to hear but also very informative and allows us to grasp where some of our turtles are through the winter.

Have a look at the distance between where she was tagged and found deceased (map from Google).
