HPA Sea Turtle Research Program Moso Island, Vanuatu
January 6 to January 12, 2023
As can be seen on our blog… we had a successful educational/research trip to Vanuatu recently. While weather was an issue, we were able to tag one nesting hawksbill turtle, Makala (named after the area where she was found), who has left Moso and is heading towards her foraging grounds. Her current path suggests she may be headed to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Here are a few student posts from the blog that you might enjoy!
Makala's trip on the southern GBR and her "home" range
The video above shows Makala’s track along the great barrier reef to what seems to be her true home range area.
