Some Sea Turtle populations nest and feed in the same general areas; others migrate great distances.
The most common method used to track free-range Sea Turtles is flipper tagging; although this method does not reveal travel routes.
Recently, radio, sonic, and satellite tracking have been successful in monitoring sea turtle movements.
Please report any marine animals in distress to the Sheriff's Dispatch 904.824.8304.
