First GPS-GSM transmitters of 2019 deployed in Northern Adriatic

Riccione, Italy

After the winter dedicated to further optimization of GPS-GSM transmitters, the University of Primorska got the opportunity, to attach the first two transmitters of 2019. Our colleagues from Fondazione Cetacea from Italy were releasing turtles that underwent successful rehabilitation. Two sub-adult female turtles, Nini and Nicole, were suitable candidates, healthy and big enough. The devices were successfully attached and the two turtles released to the sea in the presence of about 80 visitors.
