Sea Turtle Restoration ProgramLatest update July 29, 2017 Started on July 29, 2017
We will attach satellite device on sea turtle to study their migration and foraging habitat. Through getting scientific information our chance to save the marine megafauna will be more in future and develop protected areas.
