Satellite Tracking of Nesting Females

The ProTECTOR Satellite Tagging Program began in September, 2010 with the very first sea turtle to be tagged with a satellite transmitter in the history of Honduras. Her name is"Erica" and she's an adult Olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea).

In 2011, we launched two more satelite tags with "Tenita", and "Brenda" These turtles were also Olive ridleys, and we are currently following their migration pathways in the Pacific Ocean.
