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.
