    The Marine Turtle Conservation Project (MTCP) have placed 22 satellite trackers on green turtles since 1998 which have revealed several major foraging areas within the Mediterranean. However, recent research using stable isotope analysis suggest that an important foraging area may have been missed due to chance. Therefore, MTCP have taken the opportunity to attach satellite trackers to 5 turtles which the stable isotopes suggest forage in the area of interest.

    The project tracks small juvenile loggerhead turtles. The turtles were born in Valencia (Spain) from a natural nest found in San Juan (Alicante, Spain) in 2014.

    The ADRIA-Watch project is a scientific observatory for large marine vertebrates of the Northern Adriatic Sea. Data are collected and pooled together into one single database, working towards a better understanding and dealing of the problems affecting the large inhabitants of the area and to promote public awareness. ADRIA-Watch collects data on sightings and strandings of Cetaceans (dolphins and whales), marine turtles and sharks along our coasts. ADRIA-Watch also contributes to a sharing of knowledge: web site, public conferences, scientific seminars, didactic material and educational projects. In the framework of this project 5 satellite-tracked loggerhead turtles will be released in 2006, from five different sites in the northern Adriatic sea, from both Eastern (Slovenian and Croatian) and Western (Italian) shores.

    The aim of this project is to investigate the movements performed by loggerhead turtles in the Adriatic sea. The Adriatic sea is home to a quite large number of turtles, especially loggerheads, representing one of the best feeding areas within the Mediterranean Sea. Both juveniles and adult loggerheads frequent this area, and are thought to perform seasonal migrations, especially in response to changes in environmental parameters (especially temperature).

    Lampedusa is an island located on the northern edge of the Gulf of Gabés, one of the most important foraging grounds for both adult and juvenile loggerheads living in the Mediterranean Sea. This project aims at investigating the movements of the neritic-stage juvenile turtles in this area.

    The UK Overseas Territories of Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands are located in the north-west Lesser Antilles. Whilst mainland Anguilla lacks any large breeding seabird populations, its offshore cays excel in this area and are home to five globally and 12 regionally important populations. Four of Anguilla’s seven offshore cays are already designated as terrestrial important bird areas (IBAs) due to their important seabird colonies, with Dog Island being the second most important site for breeding seabirds in the region.
