After sailing 25 miles out from Torrevieja over night in attempt to be in the hotspot for loggerhead turtles at first light, the weather remained against us. Yet our team of 10 people, representing 8 nationalities, had an extremely productive day practising turtle survey techniques. Each team member was trained to take on the vital roles involved such as logging the data, spotting the turtle, launching and driving the RIB, capturing and releasing the turtle etc. We are now fully prepared to deploy the Crittercams and are keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will allow us!
