Tracking Finley

Map of a coastal area with a line tracing the path of a sea turtle.

Detailed Description

Map showing satellite tag locations of postrelocation movements of Finley, the adult female Kemp’s ridley sea turtle tagged in Pascagoula, MS, in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Symbols are color coded by time showing the location in chronological order: cool colors, like green, are older (green is oldest), and hot colors, like red, are more recent). In early March, Finley was tracked to nesting areas on the Mexican coast. By June, she was well on her way back to home foraging grounds in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
