Track our turtles

We are currently tracking two 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” will be tracked during the 2019 nesting season. We are very interested in her behavior during a very large beach nourishment project occurring along the beach where she was tagged.
