This year we are targeting satellite tracking of loggerheads to specific females at Alagadi. PhD student Julia Haywood has spent a year in the lab using forensics to find out which of the regular Alagadi nesting females may be using certain areas of interest as foraging sites. With a hit list of females in hand we set about tracking known females, but due to a relatively poor turnout of nesting females, not many of our target girls turned up. We therefore only managed to track 4 of our target of 11 females. Seven transmitters are ready to go out in 2018 when we hope to see more loggerhead nesting.
