Fall 2012 Sea Turtle Release - Follow the Sea Turtles!

In the Fall of 2012, IMMS returned many endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtles to their home in the Mississippi Sound. These sea turtles were all rescued and rehabilitated at IMMS's Center for Marine Education and Research located in Gulfport, Mississippi. Most of the sea turtles were caught on hook and line at local fishing piers in Mississippi. Before being released, some of the sea turtles were equipped with satellite tracking devices that will allow IMMS researchers to track the movement migration patterns of these animals. Little is known about Kemp's Ridley sea turtles in Mississippi. The satellite tags will allow us to learn valuable information about the movement migration patterns of this endangered species.
