  • Hello my names is Kaidence and I am doing my endangered Animal report on the Leatherback Sea turtle I wish I could donate?

  • This a very inserting species of turtles. I wish that i could donate but unfortunately i cant. I am actually writing a children book for my intro to Ag class in this species of sea turtles!

    • Isla is occasionally sending data to us but the system is unable to calculate a location. This is likely due to bio fouling of her tag and low state of charge of the batteries on her transmitter. We have followed her for more than 640 days now and we are hoping that she will nest this season. Her last data location shows here very close to her “normal” nesting beach. When new data arrives it will be plotted on her map automatically.

    • The transmitter that is attached to Kailani relays data to us a few times a day. The data she sends is is often deemed low quality and is not plotted on the map. When high quality locations are received, they are plotted on the map. As a result, her track will only appear to update once or twice a day.

  • Maybe the website i purchased this bracelet that donates money to saving turtles is a hoax and gives you a turtle name that you helped from making the purchase but yet the turtle does not move on this tracking website makes
    No sense

  • I Love you, my girl Malone! Stay safe honey and enjoy your relaxing current. I wish I knew your age, though. Take care and I hope the best for the others as well! ❤-Katelyn

    • Kailani is no longer being tracked as her transmitter has stopped working. It is highly likely that her batteries have been exhausted.

    • We would love to track more Gulf turtles! It is pretty rare to find leatherbacks nesting on the Gulf side of Florida. Last season there was a turtle that nested on Sarasota beaches, and there was one that nested on Sanibel in 2015. Juniper is a pretty rare leatherback and we are excited to be tracking her.
