The WiLDCOAST Sea Turtle Tracking Project aims to find out more about the at-sea behaviour of black turtles following nesting on the beaches of Michoacan, Mexico. We deployed 3 satellite transmitters or Platform Terminal Transmitters (PTT?s) on black turtles in Winter 2001
The project is a collaboration among the California Academy of Sciences; The Community of Colola, Michoacan, Mexico; Grupo Tortuguero de las Californias (Rodrigo Rangel and Julio Solis); Marine Turtle Research Group, University of Exeter; seaturtle.org; University of Michoacan, San Nicolas Hidalgo; and the WiLDCOAST international conservation team.
This work was possible as a result of the support of the UK's Natural Environment Research Council.
