Nesting Gulf loggerheads face offshore risks
Date:7/15/2013

rrent estimates suggest because they are calculated using nest numbers. "Our research shows that the same turtle could easily deposit eggs in Alabama and Florida if nests are separated by about 2 weeks," said Hart. "Population numbers based on nest counts may therefore be biased upwards if nests at the two sites were assumed to have come from two different females."

The study also noted that the areas the loggerheads used during the inter-nesting period overlapped with human uses, such as shrimp trawling and oil and gas platforms. A map showing sea turtle habitat use in relation to these activities can be found in the article, "Movements and Habitat-Use of Loggerhead Sea Turtles in the Northern Gulf of Mexico during the Reproductive Period," which was published July 3 in the journal PLOS ONE.

"We are working towards defining areas where sea turtles concentrate their activities at sea, effectively building a map of in-water turtle hotspots," said Hart. "The more we know about their habitat use, the more questions are raised about their behavior and ability to adapt. We hope to build a better understanding of how frequently turtles return to these same locations, and whether or not they move to new habitats when those locations are impacted. This type of information would be extremely valuable for developing management strategies to help in population recovery."
