Since 2008, the CESTM has been conducting a satellite monitoring programme for some of the marine turtles it rehabilitates.
It makes it possible to follow in quasi real time the turtles handed over to the Ocean. Thus, their positions recorded during their journey, combined with the data of various oceanographic parameters, make it possible to highlight the factors which influence their journey offshore (temperature, surface currents…).
Of the 8 marine turtles that returned to their natural environment in 2020, three have been equipped with a satellite transmitter and one of them is still working. It allows to follow the route of Kemen.
