Turtle Tracker is the site from Project Biodiversity where you can follow, at any time, the position of 3 female loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) that nested in Sal Island. This is possible thanks to the research carried out by The Eizaguirre Lab from Queen Mary University of London as part of their Turtle Project together with Dr Schofield's research group.

With small devices based on satellite telemetry systems and attached to the carapace of the turtle with harmless resin, we can track sea turtles for long distances and periods of time, allowing us to follow them during their internesting migrations to feeding grounds. With this information, the international community will have more tools to address threats to sea turtles such as by-catch from industrial fisheries.
