Squirtle is a loggerhead turtle that was satellite tagged on the nesting beaches adjacent to LMC on April 21, 2021. Tracking data from this turtle will be used in various ongoing research projects being conducted by the Research Department at LMC.

Squirtle was named by students at The Benjamin School, coeducational, college-preparatory independent school with a campus located just down the road from LMC. Squirtle’s tracking data will be woven into The Benjamin School curriculum as a first-hand educational resource providing students a unique opportunity to work with real-world scientific data.
