The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Foundation is conducting health assessment and telemetry research using wild-caught and by-caught loggerhead and Kemp’s ridley sea turtles. The project goals include comparing rehabilitated and wild animals, developing a relatively fine temporal and spatial scale surface time ratio for abundance estimates, and understanding how “near shore” and “off shore” populations interact and utilize the habitat.
