Loggerhead Sea Turtles Grown Up on Miner-All
E-mail
Videos - STF Videos

Florida Aquatic University and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center Sea Turtle Rescue and Research. Facility uses Miner-All to supplement the captive hatched sea turtles while growing to appropriate size for release into the ocean. In 2009 they raised and released 24 leatherbacks. They are the tough species, 30 green turtles and 40 loggerheads. Once grown to optimal size, they are fitted with microtransmitter tags (in addition to determining their sex).
Two of the turtles I saw when I visited in 2005 were fitted with satellite transmitters and are travelling along the US coast. If you want to see where they are the link to their tracks is below:

Over 2200 loggerhead, green and leatherback turtles have thrived with Miner-All as part of their diets.
