Abstract: Loggerhead sea turtle satelitte tracking project Understanding where loggerheads nesting in the United States go after they leave the nesting beach, what routes they take to get there, and where the principle feeding areas are located will help us learn what threats they face there and what we need to do to protect them," said Sandy MacPherson, national sea turtle coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and a member of the research tagging team. "This information is critical to determine where international cooperation is needed to ensure recovery of sea turtles."
