Description
This project aims to determine the migration routes taken by headstarted turtles from a small research project on Vabbinfaru Island, Male Atoll, Republic of the Maldives. The project is the result of a very successful combination of public participation and the Banyan Tree Resort (Vabbinfaru), and rears a small number of green turtles for an 18-month period. Following this some of the turtles are tracked to ensure their offshore dispersal ultimately ends up with them settling at a coastal feeding ground. more

Data suggesting 'longest signal' of 884 days are suspect. Transmission actually ceased in April 2005 before signal apparently resumed, briefly, in February 2007.
