About This Project

The Chocoan River Turtle, a freshwater species, has limited populations along the Pacific coast of Colombia and Ecuador and is listed as near threatened and little is known about it. Despite being previously thought of as a freshwater, herbivorous species, it has recently been seen on land feeding on the carrion of a mammal. Biologging tags will be used as a hands-off technique to give insight into the daily activities and nesting habits of this interesting turtle on Isla Palma, Colombia.
