If you don’t see your turtle listed above, please check the full list of sea turtles tracked through the STC website.

Note About Location Points: STC does not receive location points every day. Some location points are provide by researchers and are posted on the maps as soon as we receive them. There may be times when there are no new points for several weeks. This is most likely the result of the sea turtle not staying at the surface long enough for the transmitter to be picked up by enough satellites. It takes several satellites to pick up the location of a transmitter and the transmitter antenna needs to be out of the water long enough for the satellites to pick up the signal. STC will continue to post new positions as soon as we receive them.
