Tracking of sea turtles

Mar 1, 2018

One of our Argos customers recently deployed the first satellite tagged, hard shelled turtles (greens and hawksbills) in Papua New Guinea.  Its very exciting news in the turtle world!

Conservation International and partner Eco-Custodian Advocates announced the successful tagging of two endangered species of sea turtles, the hawksbill and green sea turtles, with satellite-tracking devices. The tagging, which took place from December 4 through December 15, will allow for a deeper understanding of the movements of one of the world’s oldest creatures and marks the first effort of its kind in Papua New Guinea.

Green Sea Turtle

It will play a key role in the conservation of endangered sea turtles in the region.
