Turtle Tracking Maps
The WWF Species Tracker is a wonderful Google Map which allows you to follow the movements of a number of animals around the world. The map includes mapped tracks of a number of polar bears, yellowfin tuna, jaguars and whales. However, on World Turtle Day, you will probably want to use the map to follow the movements of marine turtles.
The World Wildlife Fund tracks several populations of marine turtles around the world. If you select the Marine Turtle link from the WWF Species Tracker sidebar you can view the current position and tracks of turtles off the coast of Australia, the Caribbean and the Persian Gulf. In total you can view the tracks of 8 different marine turtles in the Persian Gulf, 4 turtles in the Caribbean and 5 turtles off the coast of Australia.
