The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies hosted its first sea turtle release for 2024 on May 21st at 10:30 a.m.

The event took place in Biloxi in front of the public beach parking area.

One of the sea turtles, Max, has a tracker on him!

We would like to extend our gratitude to the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources for their continued collaboration and support of our satellite telemetry projects.

The data collected from Max and other turtles is invaluable to understanding how sea turtles are utilizing the Mississippi Sound and surrounding waters!
