Sadir was captured on June 23, 2008 using tangle nets near Playa Quemado in the Gulf of Calfornia, Mexico and is the second hawksbill to ever be equipped with a satellite tag in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. At a total of 73.5 cm in length (CCL) Sadir represents a transitional (large juvenile) size class that will offer unique information on the biology and behavior of this little understood species.
The satellite tag was donated by the National Marine Fisheries Service's Southwest Fisheries Science Center and project activities were made possible through the close collaboration between Pro Peninsula and the Grupo Tortuguero. Funding for the project was provided by People´s Trust for Endangered Species, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Fish and Wildlife Federation.

SEATURTLE.ORG collaborates with Argos to help scientists and conservationists manage and analyse their valuable animal tracking data.
