Sea Turtle Tracking: Active Sea Turtles

**SCAM ALERT!** If you came to this page from Wildlife Collections, that’s great! If not, we wanted to warn you about companies operating under a variety of names are selling products online and illegally using STC’s tracked turtles as a perk to buyers. If you have been offered a STC tracked turtle by purchasing something from Ocean Project.co (not to be confused with ‘The Ocean Project‘), Turtle’s Journey, Wildlife Team, Wildlife Mission, or Wildlife Charm, they have used Sea Turtle Conservancy’s turtle tracking information without our permission. The one exception is “Wildlife Collections,” which has an exclusive partnership with STC involving our tracked turtles. Learn more by clicking here.

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.
