Through this tracking study, the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA) aims to learn the geographical range of marine turtles breeding on islands of the Dutch Caribbean, engage the public in turtle conservation issues by showcasing the turtles' migratory behavior, and build local capabilities for performing advanced sea turtle conservation projects.

Bonaire, part of the Netherlands Antilles, has a small but stable population of sea turtles that visit our island to breed. To find out where these animals live outside of the breeding season, we are placing transmitters onto adult turtles to track them as they swim back to their feeding grounds. From this we hope to learn the geographic range of "our" turtles and highlight the need for regional cooperation in taking measures to protect these magnificent animals.
