Tags deployment on Europa island - 4 to 19 April 2019

To test the reliability of this new system, tags were deployed during the scientific campaign of the research consortium "Scattered islands"  aboard the Marion Dufresne. In particular, the tests were carried out from 8 to 11 April on the island of Europa, one of the most important breeding sites for green turtles. Five receiving stations were set up on the island to collect information on the temperature and depth in which turtles evolve. 8 tags were deployed on juvenile green turtles, to ensure the autonomy and resistance of the equipment, in the extreme conditions of temperature and sunshine encountered on Europa.
