To study the impact of climate change on the ecology of loggerhead turtles, Nagoya Port Public Aquarium is installing transmitters on turtles to be released into the sea.

In collaboration with research institutes in the United States and other countries, Nagoya Port Public Aquarium is investigating how climate change is affecting the swimming routes of loggerhead turtles in the sea, with the aim of more effective protection of the endangered loggerhead turtle.

28 loggerhead turtles are scheduled to be released into the central North Pacific Ocean in July, and on the 18th, transmitters that transmit location information were installed at the museum's research facility.

"This survey will reveal new migration routes. We hope that the results will provide material for formulating concrete measures that will be useful for protecting loggerhead turtles at their destinations." (Masanori Mori, Sea Turtle Specialist, Nagoya Port Public Aquarium)

The 28 turtles will be tracked using transmitters for about 400 days as they swim.
