Reliable and affordable PitStop tracking system for monitoring threatened sea turtles. Data gathered is essential to recognize their movements and behaviour, the information necessary to design better strategies for their conservation and the protection of their habitats. Different designs, materials and sealing methods were proposed and tested to find the optimal solution considering the performance, reliability and costs.

Two different solutions are available, the PitStop GPS Tag (PS-G) can be used to track the movements of sea turtles, and the PitStop Camera Tag (PS-C) to capture video on nesting sea turtles.
