Abstract: The project tracks small juvenile loggerhead turtles. The turtles were born in Valencia (Spain) and Catalonia from natural nests found in Spain in 2014 and in Andalusia in 2015, and Valencia (2016). Eggs were translocated and the neonates were headstared in different centers: Arca del Mar, Oceanogràfic de Valencia, Acuario de Sevilla, Fundación CRAM and at the CEGMA Algeciras. Supplemental information: Visit STAT's project page for additional information. This dataset is a summarized representation of the telemetry locations aggregated per species per 1-degree cell.
