Travel with “Tortuga Lola”

A group of researchers from the Campus Gandia, under the direction of Eduardo Belda, are taking part in a satellite tagging project studying the behavior, habitat use and survival of captive-bred and rehabilitated loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta). The study is being carried out in collaboration with the Generalitat Valenciana, the University of Valencia, the Oceanogràfic […]

Return of the Loggerhead Turtles

In recent decades, the preservation of the loggerhead sea turtle or Caretta caretta has raised great concern due to the escalation of environmental threats, many of them caused by the negative impact of human activity on the marine environment. In addition to the effects of marine pollution, specifically the presence of marine debris consisting mainly […]

The Conservation of Sea Turtles is Nearing

Captive breeding of newborn turtles and protection and relocation of nests would contribute to the conservation of loggerhead sea turtles, Caretta caretta, in our waters. This is one of the conclusions found in the first follow-up study conducted on the behavior of post-hatchling turtles in the Mediterranean that was recently published in the Marine Biology journal.

Celebrating 3 Years Disseminating Campus Gandia Research

After more than 1,000 days since the launch of the science website project for the Campus Gandia  of the Universitat Politècnica de València, we think that now is an appropriate time for stocktaking. 3 years, 123 posts, nearly 90,000 views and more than 32,000 users later, the people here making the UPV Gandia Science project […]

Various institutions, including the Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València, are collaborating on a project involving satellite monitoring of juvenile loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) from breeding programs of the clutches found in the Spanish Mediterranean basin. The ultimate goal is to understand the behavior of this species to establish marine planning strategies for […]

New Satellite Tagging Project for Loggerhead Turtles

Researchers from Campus Gandia, Valencia University and the Oceanographic, alongside the NGO Xaloc and the Generalitat Valenciana (Valencia Regional Government), are working on a satellite-tagging project to study the behavior, habitat use and survival of loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta). The loggerhead turtles are being tagged with satellite transmitters to track their movements after being released […]

Using Scientific Echo Sounders to Conduct Census of Turtle Populations

Sonars and echo sounders are commonly used to detect and assess fish stock, as well as for species identification. However, there are very few studies of turtle populations made with these tools, probably due to a lack of commercial interest. Now a team of researchers from the Campus of Gandia and the Oceanogràfic in Valencia are […]
