24 Sep Leatherback Turtle Tags Get Redesign
Leatherback turtle tags have gone through a slight redesign adding a battery isolator screw and copper washers. The battery isolator screws allow us to ship these tags without being labeled as “Dangerous Goods” following IATA regulations. The copper washers prevent biofouling over the wet/dry sensors allowing our tags to function properly in areas where biofouling is prevalent.
Our leatherback designs feature angled bases to match the curve of the turtle’s carapace. The tags also come in one-loop or two-loop attachments. Check out more information here: https://wildlifecomputers.com/taxa/leatherback-turtle/
