Satellite Tracking

Why did animal X stop transmitting?

Background

Overnight beach patrols finally paid off! TIDE's first Ridge to Reef expedition group had the incredible experience of tagging a critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle on 23rd August 2014! It took 3 hours, finishing up at 5 am, but now TIDE of HOPE will be providing important migration data for sea turtles that nest in the Port Honduras Marine Reserve. Thanks to Dr. Todd Rimkus, Marymount University, Hawksbill Hope for leading this important project and providing the tag and for ECOMAR to facilitate the effort! TIDE’s first Ridge to Reef expedition group aptly named this turtle TIDE of HOPE since this will enable TIDE to highlight the importance of the coastal beaches and foraging areas for endangered sea turtles. Several of the turtles that nest at Gales Point forage in Port Honduras so we know there already exists this link. We are all excited to follow TIDE of HOPE's progress over the coming months and look forward to being present as her hatchlings emerge from the nest in November.
