Satellite Tracking

Why did animal X stop transmitting?

Background

"Edisto," a 148 kg adult male loggerhead, was rescued from the Atlantic Ocean off of Edisto Beach, SC on May 21, 2007. A crab trap rope was entangled around his back, left flipper, cutting deeply to the bone. The animal was rehabilitated at the South Carolina Aquarium's Turtle Hospital, and weighing 148 kg at release, is the largest sea turtle treated at the facility. SC Department of Natural Resources Sea Turtle Program and the South Carolina Aquarium are partnering on this satellite telemetry project to track this animal's migrations. "Edisto" will be the first adult male loggerhead to be satellite tagged and released off South Carolina's coast.
