As part of a larger marine biodiversity project in Gabon, this year we are adding satellite tracking of green turtles from their foraging grounds in Corisco Bay. The project aims to examine size-based foraging patterns of turtles. These movement data will be integrated with a charaterization of the local habitat and an assessment of anthropogenic threats. Supplemental infomation: Visit STAT's project page for additional information. This dataset is a summarized representation of the telemetry locations aggregated per species per 1-degree cell.
