Tracking Turtles with Google Maps

Sea Turtle Conservation, on the the Caribbean island of Bonaire, have been tracking turtles since 2003. The Previously Tracked Turtles Map shows the tracks of the 21 adult turtles that have been tracked since the programme began.

This year Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire have developed the Great Migration Game to follow the movements of one turtle, called Jklynn. School students in Bonaire can predict where the sea turtle will end up and win some great prizes if they guess correctly.

You can see Jklynn's current position on this Jklynn Google Map.
