FWS Employee tagging Loggerhead Turtle

FWS biologist tags an endangered Loggerhead Turtle. The Atlantic Loggerheads were listed as threatened on July 28, 1978. Their populations declined due to incidental capture in shrimp trawls, loss of habitat due to coastal development, artificial light on coasts causing disorientation of nesting females, beach sand mining, and many are lost in storms because they get thrown up with Sargassum weeds.
