The Oman loggerhead tagging project began in 2006 and is part of a broader programme to asses the population status and spatial ecology of nesting females from one of the world's most important loggerhead rookeries, Mariah Island, Sultanate of Oman.

In 2017 the team visited Hallaniyat Islands in Southern Oman (Dhofar), to install tags for the first time on loggerheads in Oman outside of Masirah.

The tagging data will be used to evaluate the nesting frequency, interesting habitat use, post nesting migration and and foraging habitat use. Processed data will also be used to investigate the spatial overlap with local fisheries.
