Over the years, researchers have learned much about loggerhead's nesting behavior (i.e. seasonality, number of eggs, sites), but little is known about the animal's behavior when underwater, away from the beach- especially for the relatively small Georgia/South Carolina nesting population. With use of satellite tracking, researchers hope to learn more about the swimming and resting behaviors, habitat utilization, and genetics of the post-nesting loggerhead sea turtle.
