With funding from BOEMRE, we are satellite tagging sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico in collaboration with the Corps of Engineers, UF Co-Op unit, and Dave Addison. Larry Southern and Tony Tucker have been especially helpful in deploying tags for the project. The goal of the project is to deploy 37 GPS satellite tags on loggerhead and Kemp's ridley sea turtles to understand their movements, dive behavior, and habitat use to better estimate abundance and provide input for their management in the Gulf. Tags will be deployed on sub-adults and adults of both species.
