Abstract: The project aims to study the distribution and dispersal of juvenile loggerheads. The juvenile are < 1 year. They come from a a headstarting program with eggs from a nest found at a beach in Pulpi (Andalusia, Spain). This is the second nest ever found at this region. The nest was found at Palmeras Beach (Pulpi) by a fishermen family and rescued by the NGO Equinac. <br>Te nest was doomed and the eggs were relocated and incubated at the Doñana Biological Station (CSIC). Neonates were raised at the Acuario de Sevilla (Sevilla, Spain) and the CEGMA of Algeciras. Tagging was conducted by researchers from Universitat Politècnica de Valencia-IGIC and University of Valencia.

This dataset is a summarized representation of the telemetry locations aggregated per species per 1-degree cell.

Original provider: Observatoire PELAGIS UMS 3462 University La Rochelle - CNRS Dataset credits: Observatoire PELAGIS UMS 3462, University La Rochelle - CNRS -Agence des Aires Marines Protégées - Direction de l'Eau et de la Biodiversité Abstract: In order to establish a baseline map of cetaceans and other pelagic megafauna across the French EEZ, the French agency for marine protected areas (AAMP) decided to conduct a series of surveys allowing hotspots of abundance and diversity to be identified and a future monitoring scheme to be established. A dedicated aerial survey methodology, following standard protocols, was preferred to ship surveys. The general design corresponds to published protocols prepared for small cetaceans, but data for other marine mammals (large whales, sirenians), seabirds, sea-turtles, large teleosts and large elasmobranchs) are collected as well.
The Spatial Ecological Analysis of Marine Megavertebrate Populations (SEAMAP) initiative, a node of the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS), has developed a digital database of geo-referenced marine mammal, seabird and sea turtle distribution and abundance data.
