Original provider: Proyecto Aegina (Canary Islands) Dataset credits: Data provider Proyecto Aegina Originating data center Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT) Project partner This satellite project is a collaboration among the Instituto Canario de Ciencias Marinas (ICCM) of the Gobierno de Canarias, the Instituto Nacional de Desenvolvimento das Pescas (INDP), and the Direcção Geral do Ambiente, the latter depending on the Ministerio de Ambiente, Agricultura e Pescas of the Republic of Cabo Verde.

The Centro de Recuperación de Fauna Silvestre (Cabildo de Gran Canaria) provides us logistic support for the development of this proyect Project sponsor or sponsor description This project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) through the Interreg IIIB Program Açores-Madeira-Canarias, dependent on the European Union. Abstract: Aegina is a cooperation project between Gobierno de Canarias (Spain) and Republic of Cabo Verde; the main goal of the project is to propose a management plan for the Protected Marine Areas important for the sea turtles at both archipelagos.
In the Canary Islands there lives an important juvenile stock of loggerheads, and in Cabo Verde archipelago occurs one of the largest nesting populations of loggerheads in the world.
Five transmitters will be deployed on males of the Cabo Verde nesting population, complementary with the ongoing studies of females by Marine Turtle Research Group (Brendan Godley, Lucy Hawkes; see also at Turtle Track). Another ten transmitters will be deployed on juvenile loggerheads in Canary Islands. 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.
