Introduction



Previous studies have revealed that the island of Anguilla hosts a small yet locally important nesting population of leatherback turtles (www.seaturtle.org/mtrg/projects/tcot). The satellite tracking of this female leatherback is being carried out with local partners under the Turtles in the UK Overseas Territories project ( TUKOT). TUKOT aims to facilitate research and create awareness of the marine turtles and their conservation in seven UK Overseas Territories, including Anguilla.
