œTurtle tagging surveys

@
The pictures shown here are examples of tags which we use to differentiate individual sea turtles.Each tag has a number that identifies the turtle. By using these numbers we can keep track of where turtles migrate. The one shown here is a plastic tag. There are also metal tags shaped in a similar form. In Japan, we put one or both of these tags on turtles that were caught in fishery nets (by catch), or when nesting. Should you find a seaturtle with any kind of identification tag that you see here, please get in touch with the organization presented on the tag or the@Sea Turtle Association of Japan.
