Wildlife telemetry is a research method used to  gather detailed information including wildlife habitat  usage, home range size, mortality survivorship,  etc.

Using an antenna and receiver we are able to track and pinpoint the locations of the transmitters and  the turtles they are attached to. Once the turtles are located they are measured, weighed and photographed.  Notes are then taken on their behaviour as  well as their surroundings.  Once the data  is recorded the turtles are then re-released.
