Title: Summary of satellite tagged sea turtles at NOAA Galveston 2002-2016
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2002
Abstract:

A masters level student at Texas A&M University at Galveston [TAMUG] worked for the Galveston Lab and applied satellite tags to nesting turtles. When the student finished their work and moved on, TAMUG took over the satellite nestiing project, but as a condition of the USFWS permit was TAMUG had to bring the turtle back to the NOAA Galveston Laboratory for satellite tagging so the Galveston Lab continued to document information even though they were not the ones physically collecting that information.

Later turtles were documented that were moved off the beach for satellite tagging, even if they didn't receive a satellite tag. In addition the Galveston Lab continued to document each time a satellite turtle was seen, even if it was not satellite tagged.

Purpose:

To provide a list of satellite tagged nesting turtles.
