A huge thank you to Lush for sponsoring Habibi. This support is invaluable in helping us learn all we can about turtle behaviour and habitat use. These data will help us conserve sea turtles much more effectively, and we are extremely grateful to Lush for their support - and so is Habibi!!!

Habibi turtle was caught using 'rodeo' style capture methods off Bu Tinah Island, Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi. Capture involved a chase at sea using a boat and jet ski, until finallly someone jumped and caught the turtle by hand. After a quick laparoscopic inspection habibi was found to be an adult male in reproductive condition, and we hope he will migrate to breed later in 2017. He carries flipper tags 0624 on the right side and 0623 on the left, and measures 91.1 cm in carapace length.

SEATURTLE.ORG collaborates with Argos to help scientists and conservationists manage and analyse their valuable animal tracking data.
