Chungkingosaurus's Story

Chungkingosaurus is an adult female loggerhead sea turtle that was rehabilitated for boat propeller strike wounds and predator attack injuries. After making a full recovery she was released back into the ocean fitted with a satellite tag tracker on her carapace. Although their tag didn’t transmit very long, we’re happy to see where Chung traveled to gain some insight on where adult rehabbed turtles may go after release. Check out our satellite tracking landing page for reasons why a tag may cease transmission!
