EMY, a Salvadoran hawksbill measuring 82.2 cm, was tagged on July 15th 2009 at the beach of El Maculis, along the country’s eastern coast that borders the Gulf of Fonseca. Considering that one of the hawksbills from the first satellite tagging campaign in El Salvador (2008) nested to the west of Emy in the Bahia de Jiquilisco and migrated to foraging areas in the Gulf of Fonseca to the east, investigators are particularly interested in seeing where she goes.
The tagging event was a joint effort between NOAA’s (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Southwest Fisheries Science Center, FUNZEL (Zoological Foundation of El Salvador), ICMARES (Marine Sciences Institute of the University of El Salvador), MARN (Salvadoran Ministry of the Environment), FUNDATAMARINDO (El Tamarindo Foundation of El Salvador) and ICAPO (Eastern Pacific Hawksbill Initiative). We would especially like to thank the Fishing Cooperative of El Maculis for their collaboration in this effort.
