Introduction

Este proyecto intenta expandir un programa de conservacion de tortugas marinas que se esta realizando en el norte de la peninsula de la Guajira en Colombia por un grupo de pescadores de la comunidad indigena Wayuu de las zona de Bahia Hondita y Punta Gallinas. Este grupo ha protegido playas de anidacion, hembras anidantes, huevos y nidos. Sin embargo, la Guajira cuenta con aguas costeras en donde habitan numeros juveniles y subadultos de la especie Chelonia mydas. El prinicpal objetivo de este programa de telemetria satelital es monitorear individuos de C. mydas en estadio juvenil para observer cuales areas estan utilizando y testear si estan tomando residencia en estos habitats y por cuanto tiempo.

The project intends to expand a program of marine turtles conservation in the north of La Guajira peninsula of Colombia carried out by a group of local fishermen from the Wayuu indigenous community of the bahia Hondita bay and Punta Gallinas sectors. The group has been protecting nesting beaches, females, nests and eggs. However, La Guajira harbors nearshore waters with numerous juveniles and subadults of the species Chelonia mydas. The main purpose of this tracking program is to monitor individual juvenile C. mydas to observe which areas of La Guajira they area using and to test if they are taking residency at these habitats and for how long.
