The project aims to study the distribution and dispersal of juvenile loggerheads. The juvenile are < 1 year. They come from a a headstarting program with eggs from a nest found at a beach in Pulpi (Andalusia, Spain). This is the second nest ever found at this region. The nest was found at Palmeras Beach (Pulpi) by a fishermen family and rescued by the NGO Equinac.

Te nest was doomed and the eggs were relocated and incubated at the Doñana Biological Station (CSIC). Neonates were raised at the Acuario de Sevilla (Sevilla, Spain) and the CEGMA of Algeciras. Tagging was conducted by researchers from Universitat Politècnica de Valencia-IGIC and University of Valencia.
