This medium size photo is the core of the study area today. The primary difference between this and the original smaller study area (aside from almost doubling in size) is the inclusion of the area to the west including the clearcut where M13 frequented and hibernated.
(1.563 Km) wide
(1.616 Km) high
Several turtles have been tracked both to the north and to the south of this photo, including transients, and other long distance travelers.
The large photo is the current study area except for M17's (transient) route. Several turtle routes (M20 aqua, M13 blue and yellow, and M22 red) are overlain to show the extent of the turtle travels. The photo dimensions are:
1.1 miles wide
1.8 miles high
As turtles travel longer distances, and into areas not tracked before, larger photos wil be needed to plot the new tracks.
