Tracking Turtles… A Lost Transmitter
Here is the next update on our remaining two transmitter turtles. Sadly, Redfoot has lost his transmitter, so Dean Bagley is going to start sending updates for our remaining two turtles, Spencer and Kevin.
Spencer seems pretty content to be west of the Marquesas, and has been foraging in an area to the east of his previously used areas (red is most recent). His most recent location is the red dot to the left of the date.
Kevin has spent the last month or two in Boca Grande Channel. Now he has moved back outside, west of the Marquesas. As of the 15th, his location was the closest red dot to the right of the date. Kevin’s transmitter was not funded through STPS, but we will continue tracking him as part of Dean Bagley’s research.
