Background

YYG742 "Jeffy" is a juvenile green sea turtle that was outfitted with a Sirtrack KiwiSat 202 satellite transmitter and released on 26 July 2007. "Jeffy" was captured during STFERL entanglement netting operations near Port Aransas, Texas, as part of a 2-year study funded by the Texas Sea Grant Program to examine occurrence and distribution of sea turtles in Texas bays.

YYG742 has been named "Jeffy" by the TAMUG STFERL staff in honor of Jeff George, Curator of Sea Turtle, Inc, on South Padre Island, TX, for his dedication to sea turtle conservation and education. The STFERL is also grateful for Jeff's assistance in temporarily housing sea turtles captured during STFERL netting operations in the lower Laguna Madre.
