Track Sea Turtle with Satellite Tag

Filed under: Roanoke Island by roanokeisland on Tuesday, August 5th, 2014


Green sea turtle Pluto was equipped with a satellite tag and released on June 20th, after being rehabilitated at the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island. No tracking data was recorded for weeks, and we worried that the tag had malfunctioned. A few days ago, the tag began emitting a signal! Pluto is currently swimming in the Pamlico Sound, north of Cedar Island. Follow the link to see where else Pluto travels!
