Muscat – Environment Authority launched the second phase of a project to track turtles via satellites on Tuesday.

The project aims to enhance information to study the nesting behaviour and natural habitat of sea turtles. Five tracking devices were installed in the Ras al Jinz area to achieve the project’s objective by monitoring threats during turtle migration and the environmental risks to the creatures and their natural habitat.
