Please note that, on average, transmitters will send signals for around 1 year. Sometimes it can be 2 years, and sometimes it can be less than a year. The turtle icon location point represents the most recent location received for this turtle. It is not uncommon for a transmitter to skip a day or two due to the turtle's behavoir or biofouling on the transmitter or antenna. If the most recent point is more than two months old, then the transmitter is most likely no longer working.
