Background

Recent investigations in Coiba National Park in Panama have resulted in the highest recorded densities of hawksbill turtles to date. Our research team was also able to catch an adult male hawksbill an equip it with a satellite tag...only the second adult male hawksbill to be tracked via satellite telemetry in the entire eastern Pacific Ocean! The turtle is named after Mali Mali, a local park ranger who has lived on Coiba Island for 27 years and is a walking library full of stories and information on the area.

This was a joint effort between Eastern Pacific Hawksbill Initiative (ICAPO), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Autoridad Nacional del Ambiente (ANAM), Campamento Tortuguero Mayto and the Autoridad de Recursos Aquaticos de Panama (ARAP).
