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 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).
