Turtle Tracking

Technology these days continues to astound me. The latest sign of our modern SFnal age is the tracking of Zapata, a male Northern Pacific Loggerhead sea turtle, who was captured and radio-tagged near the Baja California peninsula. The site hasa map showing Zapata's progress as he makes his way across the Pacific Ocean, presumably towards the beach where he hatched, in Japan.

Hey, D. Love your links. :)
