Within the last few months scientists have been able to track the so-called ‘lost years’ of Loggerhead Turtles using satellites and tracking devices placed on the turtles. The question was originally asked, what happens during the period just after the turtles are born when they leave the United State’s coast and when they head out into the Atlantic Ocean. It was discovered these young turtles actually float and stay in roughly the same area just a little distance from the US coast. It is hypothesized that they feed and grow in patches of seaweed until they are big enough to travel further out into the Atlantic Ocean.
