Leatherback Turtle

Our leatherback designs are the product of many years development working closely with leading researchers in the industry. The packages feature angled bases to match the curve of the turtle’s carapace. Leatherback tags are attached by looping a line made of stainless steel or monofilament through the turtle’s carapacial ridge.

Life calculations assume a nominal 250 Argos transmissions per day and, if applicable, 24 FastLoc locations per day. Tag life can be extended by duty cycling.

Most SPLASH tags come in a 10 (does not contain Fastloc) or BF (does not contain depth) version. Ask your technical sales consultant which tag best meets your research goals.
