Abstract: Abstract: During the summers of 1994 to 1997, eight green turtles (Chelonia mydas) nesting at Wan-An Island, PengHu Archipelago, Taiwan, were equipped with satellite-telemetry transmitters. Using the Argos-linked satellite system, the turtles' migration routes were tracked until the transmissions stopped. The turtles migrated widely on the continental shelf to the east of Mainland China. The migration distances ranged from 193 to 1909 km, and the migration speeds from 1.2 to 2.8 km h−1. The turtles apparently utilize several coastal areas as temporal residential foraging sites, and their migrations consist of both trans-oceanic and coastal legs. The wide distribution of the foraging sites of the turtles comprising this rookery reflects the extent to which the green turtle migrates in northeast Asia; regional and international cooperation will therefore be needed to conserve this declining population.
