Species Distribution: Loggerhead Turtle - Pacific Ocean

Metadata Updated: December 8, 2023

This dataset contains a collection of known point locations of loggerhead sea turtles identified via automated satellite tracking of tagged organisms. This can be useful for assessing species abundance, population structure, habitat use, and behavior. This collection is aggregated from multiple tagged organisms and survey periods. Each data point contains attributes for further information about the time and source of the observation. This dataset was compiled by the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) and may be updated in the future if additional data sources are acquired.

NOAA's Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) deploys satellite tags on loggerhead sea turtles to track their movements around Hawaii and the wider Pacific Ocean with the intent of improving our understanding and assisting in the recovery of this endangered species.
