Introduction

The purpose of this project is to study the movement and migration routes of green turtles nesting on Egypt's Red Sea Coast. We hope to identify migration routes of nesting females, seasonal feeding grounds, and the relationship between environmental conditions and movement patterns. Sea turtles are an important component of the Red Sea ecosystem and are one of the main attractions in the Red Sea for scuba divers and snorkelers. This project is a collaboration between Indiana University Southeast, Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency, and Wadi Gemal National Park. The principal investigators for this research are Omar Attum, Beth Boesche-Taylor, and Tamer Mahmoud.
