Last week, DEKAMER held the introductory meeting of our project called Life MEDTURTLES and introduced the work packages. After the meeting, along with the field studies, we created public awareness by attaching the satellite tags to the sea turtles and releasing them to the sea.⠀
We would like to thank the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and the MAVA Foundation for supporting our tracking project.
