Satellite Tracking Information
The turtles listed below have been fitted with satellite tags and released! These turtles were either patients in Gumbo Limbo’s Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility or they were educational turtles that were released.
Turtle movements represent the best available data. The life of the battery will last up to one year, but once they are released back into their natural habitat the signals can end at any time. The most common reason for the loss of transmission is fouling on the antenna or turtles knocking off the devices when wedging themselves in the rocks where they seek shelter. This is all out of our hands once they make their way back to their ocean home.
