We are excited to share our unique partnership with Simply Southern Collection with their release of Sea Turtle Tracking Bracelets. These bracelets allow you to track BHI Conservancy's satellite-tagged sea turtles. Each sea turtle was tagged here on Bald Head Island by our Sea Turtle Protection Team. You can learn more about our partnership with Simply Southern and our annual Simply Southern Day in support of the BHI Conservancy.
How Does It Work?
Every Simply Southern Sea Turtle Tracking Bracelet includes access to your very own sea turtle to track. Included with your bracelet is a card that provides your sea turtle's name, age, picture, and a website to access your sea turtle's GPS tracking. On the sea turtle's tracking page, you can follow their incredible journey on an interactive tracking map.
Sea turtles are tagged with GPS tracking devices and this special opportunity is provided by our very own Bald Head Island Conservancy. You will be able to follow along on a map with our Sea Turtle Protection Team to see exactly where your sea turtle has traveled. Best of all, your purchase helps support our Sea Turtle Protection Program.
At times, the GPS tracker on your sea turtle may show “no activity since ——.” This may be due to a few technical reasons—the GPS antenna may be damaged, algae has grown over the sensors that tell the transmitter to send signals, or the batteries that power the transmitter no longer work. If you experience this issue, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
