Tracking of loggerhead turtles

Mindelo - in the past few weeks, several loggerhead turtles have been marked with GPS-sensors. This experiment will help the scientists from GEOMAR (Kiel) to get a better understanding of this endangered species. In addition, the sensors can measure physical and chemical properties of their surroundings and thus provide valuable information for oceanographers as well.
