We are currently tracking four endangered leatherback sea turtles. In 2018 we began tracking “Isla.” After nesting, she headed north and spent much of her time in shallow coastal waters. “Kailani” was first tagged in the 2019 season, and three new turtle will be tracked during the 2020 nesting season. We are very interested in her behavior during a very large beach nourishment project occurring along the beach where she was tagged.
Tracking of leatherbacks is a collaborative project with the Fisheries and Oceans Canada and NOAA Fisheries. If you wish to access these data for a school research project or wish to collaborate with us, please do not hesitate to contact us. We share and license data using a Creative Commons license
