Turtle (Post Nesting) Tracking

Satellite tagging

This project aims at investigating the inter-nesting movements of the nesting turtles in Kyparissia Bay and their post-nesting migrations. It is expected to provide important insights concerning the turtles’ movements and migration routes as well as their overwintering and foraging habitats.

The project continues In 2019 and 12 satellite transmitters were deployed in turtles which are nesting in the Gulf of Kyparissia and the actual nesting part of this season is coming to the end for the first turtles that nested there.

We (and you) can see the departure of 4 of the tagged females
