Sea turtle conservation demands a regional vision for a better understand of their ecology and threats. The Yucatan peninsula is one of the most important regions for sea turtles in the Caribbean, it hosts the largest hawksbill nesting populations, also one of the most important loggerhead nesting beaches in the Caribbean, and one of the top major nesting beaches for green turtles.

After two decades targeting more than 90% of the conservation, management and research efforts to protecting nesting females, clutches and hatchlings on the beach, it has been envisioned the aim to identify the migratory corridors and feeding grounds for those sea turtles individuals using the beaches we protect.

Since 2005 we started tracking 3 post-nesting females. By 2013, thanks to the contribution of many collaborators and funding sources, we have now tracked more than 30 individuals.

These are the tracking results of the last group of turtles we have been tracking, thanks to a research project funded by CONACYT-SEMARNAT in Mexico.

This time we were able to collaborate with more colleagues and partners, and together generate the information we present in this webpage.
