The Tour de Turtles 2018 by Sea Turtle Conservancy is underway! Follow Bortie's journey on www.tourdeturtles.org
Bortie is an adult female loggerhead sponsored by Bortell’s Lounge and Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club, in support of Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch. Bortie nested on Coquina Beach on June 19th, where she was tagged by the Sea Turtle Conservancy with a satellite tracker. The tracker’s transmitter signals when she has come up for air, allowing researchers to follow her migration map. You can check out her migration map here. Bortie swims to raise awareness about the threat of light pollution to sea turtles.
