Tracking Turtles via Satellite with Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning Supports

Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning supports these efforts. Such species monitoring programs are aimed at determining the migratory routes of turtles and to evaluate the effects of environmental factors such as climate change.

Note: Zoom to view the map to see the turtles' locations.

With the support of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, we obtain important data in order to take measures against climate change, in addition to determining the post-breeding migration routes and habitats of sea turtles that we monitor with a satellite monitoring device.
