IHAGGAN, "the sea turtle" in the local Chamorro language, posts articles of relevance to sea turtle conservation in the Mariana Islands (CNMI and Guam) in particular and to Micronesia and the Western Pacific in general.

As our turtle tagging adventures ended a few months ago, I've been curious to see what other programs might be doing similar work. An interesting project called Tagging of Pacific Predators (topp.org) provides an overview of publicly accessible tagged critters in real time. As the site title suggests, they cover more than turtles. Sharks, seals, even seabirds are also featured on the site. Hopefully we'll see some NMI turtles featured on the site in the future.
