VANUATU SEA TURTLE RESEARCH PROJECT (2023)
|Our home base on Moso Island... Tranquility Resort.|
After a two years absence, the HPA Sea Turtle Research Program will renew its satellite tagging project on Moso Island, Republic of Vanuatu. We have 4 students who will join Laura Jim and Marc Rice to travel to Vanuatu to deploy 3 Sea Trk iridium satellite tags on post-nesting hawksbill turtles. We will be on Moso Island from January 5, 2023 to January 14, 2023.
|We arrive in Port Vila at 1505 h on 1/5/2923. We are scheduled to be picked up by the resort van and transported ~25 Km to Havannah Harbor where we will catch the 1700 boat to Tranquility Resort... at least that is the plan at this time!!!|
