Rehabilitated Sea Turtles Tend to Resume Typical Migratory Behaviors

In this study, researchers investigated whether cold-stunned juvenile sea turtles resumed typical migratory and diving behaviors after rehabilitation.

WildlifeComputers Mk10, SPLASH, and SPOT tags were programmed to send location data via the ARGOS system continually for one month and then switch to a 1-day-on/1-day-off duty cycle. They found that, after rehabilitation, all three analyzed species (loggerhead, green, and Kemp’s ridley turtles) resumed typical migration and diving behaviors.
