The Cape Cod Times reports on the release of a new study involving 13 leatherback turtles caught in Cape Cod waters and fitted with satellite tags over the past 4 summers. The study shows that the massive sea turtles can navigate towards a destination even in far offshore where they are deprived of normal ways to gauge their position. The paper was released Tuesday, March 10.
