This project focuses on monitoring the movements and behavior of post-rehabilitated sea turtles collected in the Gulf of Mexico during the 2010 Deep Water Horizon oil spill event. Two immature loggerheads were released with satellite transmitters in October, 2010. These turtles will hopefully be part of a larger plan that will track more post-rehabilitated turtles originating from the Gulf of Mexico and Louisiana's rehabilitation facilities.
