Sea turtles cover extraordinary distances as they journey between their nesting and feeding grounds and migrate to warmer waters for the winter. Tracking their progress across the Mediterranean Sea with a GPS transmitter provides vital information about their feeding sites and migration routes which helps to safeguard their habitats.
We tracked ‘Tuba’, a 25 year old turtle who was recently rescued from the sea after seriously injuring her shell. Once back to full health, she took to the waters of the Mediterranean and we followed her maritime journey.
Over 4.5 million people from across the globe followed Tuba on her 10,000 kilometre journey. You can see Tuba’s journey on the map.
