Data from a monitoring program of the loggerhead in waters around Canary Islands. more

The waters around Canary Islands constitute a foraging ground for juvenile loggerheads from different Atlantic nesting populations. The Granadilla Environmental Observatory (OAG, Observatorio Ambiental Granadilla) is developing a monitoring program of the loggerhead in order to gain additional information on the distributional patterns of the species provided by previous programs (i.e. Aegina). The OAG is a Spanish State foundation recently created and based in Tenerife, Canary Islands, aiming to monitor environmental conditions of the sea and the state of biodiversity and marine protected areas in waters around the Canary Islands and, extensively, the archipelago of Madeira and the Azores (the Atlantic subregion called Macaronesia). One of its objectives is also the follow-up of the impacts of large marine-based infrastructures, such as large ports.
