South Florida scientists may soon learn a bit more about young sea turtles.
A group, which includes biologists with Florida Atlantic University, has come up with a new method to track the young creatures once they leave local beaches.
On the turtles' shells, the biologists plan to attach solar-powered bird tags that are small and light enough not to impair their movement.
Biologists hope the data they receive from the tracking devices will give them new insight into the early migration patterns of the turtles and the threats they face.
